Throughout the lockdown, LMS Highways crews have continued to deliver essential works to keep the countries roads and infrastructure fit for purpose. Repairing failing manhole covers is one example of the key services that LMS Highways provides.

Manholes and gullies are often the weak point in a carriageway or trunk road and with the UK’s ever greater traffic flows some ironworks are being subject to loads which they were often not designed to cope with or they have simply reached the end of their lifespan.

During lockdown, LMS were urgently called to replace a failing manhole within the busy A20 Dover trunk road. Overnight, we removed, re-bedded and re-installed the ironwork using specialist mastic material that’s designed to withstand heavy trafficking and provide a long service life.
