LMS Highways commences concrete bay replacement role on M20 J8-9
Posted by Danny Corder on Fri 19th October 2018
 
LMS Highways and LMS Civil Solutions team working jointly on vital infrastructure project.
As part of Highways England's ongoing work to reduce traffic congestion in Kent, LMS Highways have commenced work on behalf of tier 1 contractor A-one+ on a scheme to control and minimise expected cross-channel border traffic disruptions.

Combining expertise from both the Highways and Civil Solutions teams at LMS, multiple gangs are operating on the scheme providing concrete bay replacements using our tried, tested and proven rapid replacement process where concrete bays are swiftly removed in large parts, ready for the replacement concrete base which uses a combination of rapid-set and standard PQC (Pavement Quality Concrete) to meet programme and cost requirements. On this project, full and partial bays are being replaced to provide a cost-effective solution.

Additionally, where the existing concrete base is already in good condition, LMS Highways teams are providing joint-sealing and thin-bond repair expertise to protect the surface for years to come.

Highways England's solution will allow for two-way travel on the London-bound carriageway of the M20 between junction 8 at Maidstone and junction 9 at Ashford, should the coast-bound carriageway be required to manage port-bound freight. As part of that solution Highways England will guide travellers around and through Kent by providing online advice ahead of journeys and on-road messages and signage during journeys. This temporary solution, if required, is planned to be ready for a period of up to six months from March 2019.

LMS Highways Managing Director Paul Winter commented
"I see this as a great example of how we're able to offer a comprehensive single point of contact solution to major customers on schemes across the UK. Not only are we handling the highly sophisticated concrete bay replacement requirements but our competencies and proven experience in joint-sealing and highway repairs means our customer only has to deal with one subcontractor and we're able to deliver value and provide a single point of accountability for this work."
