LMS Highways have grown and developed from a regional road marking subcontractor to a national supplier of specialist highways maintenance projects including high early strength concrete repair works and associated civil engineering projects.
At LMS Highways we proudly offer a variety of Highway repair services across the UK, most frequently delivering concrete repairs, specialist surfacing and various line marking. Recently we’ve experienced an increasing demand for ironwork repairs.
Over the past few months our crews have been delivering urgent ironwork repairs along main trunk roads throughout the UK. Working overnight within a road or lane closure the team will remove, re-bed and reinstall the ironwork using a specialist mastic material which is designed to withstand heavy trafficking and provide a long service life.
Our joint repair crew recently spent three nights delivering several full depth bridge joint repairs to a carriageway in Plymouth, Devon.
Asphaltic Plug Joints (APS’) are the refurbishment of existing bridge joints. This type of repair includes the resurfacing and replacement for failed joints either like for like or by replacing with a Nosing Joint, which for a small price increase gives a greater lifespan and requires less maintenance.

We can’t believe this was three years ago already! Seems only yesterday we were on the A120 delivering rapid concrete bay replacements.
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 these challenging and uncertain times, one message from the UK Government is clear – Stay at Home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives.
Maintaining a safe and usable highway network is crucial to ensure our key workers can continue travelling to places of work and essential deliveries can be made throughout the country to those in need. To guarantee this remains possible, LMS Highways crews are working across the country providing operationally essential road repairs. Most recently working for A-one+ Area-4 delivering major motorway repairs on the M20 Junction 8 – 9 which included several full depth, rapid concrete bay replacements all whilst complying with the construction leadership council’s guidelines for COVID-19.
Congratulations to the LMS Highways M20 site team and our refined supply chain for receiving a Highways England Award.
This year LMS Highways worked as a tier 2 contractor for A-one+ providing extensive rapid concrete repairs to the M20 junction 8-9. Throughout this project we received a health & safety site audit from Highways England.
