LMS Highways Services – Cost Saving Highway Repair Solutions

With the UK entering a recession and the government making necessary budget cuts throughout many sectors, it’s looking as though budgets for highway schemes will be reduced for 2023, forcing projects to focus on preventative and life extending highway repairs as opposed to replacements.

LMS Highways are a national supplier of specialist highways maintenance projects with 40 years of experience in the highways sector. Employing a number of techniques and innovative materials, LMS are able to offer tailor made and cost-effective repair solutions.
