LMS Highways and LMS Civil Solutions combined their highly experienced teams to bring a joined-up highway repairs service on the A120 in Essex in February.

Starting with LMS Civil Solution’s highly-respected concrete bay replacement system to replace faulty slabs, the work took place over three nights.

Two slabs were extracted and replaced each night using our highly effective vacuum-lift system and a rapid-cure concrete solution was used allowing the road to be re-opened safely after each shift.

This work, is a typical example of how LMS Civil Solutions with their knowledge and experience are able to excel and impress in very difficult conditions.

The initial phase of constructing the ring beam and pouring the concrete would normally be allocated 8 weeks for completion. However, for various reasons prior to LMS’s engagement in the project, the team were left with just 3 weeks to complete the initial phase to stay within the challenging programme.

In order to achieve this, LMS’s Paul Burton has been working closely with all and has been playing an important role in the overall project management. He told us:

“The difficulties with the reduced time frame meant that we’ve not only had to work in a reduced operating space along with the other team who are busy assembling the structure, but we’ve also had to ensure that we’re not causing any disruption to the 24/7 operations of this busy network hub. The very hot weather towards the end of this phase has created additional challenges”.
