We will work safely or not at all


Our approachHow we work in the Highways Sector

An increase in the number of cars and light goods vehicles on our roads – the latter caused by the explosive growth in e-commerce – has resulted in greater congestion than ever before.

This, of course, means that accident and traffic black spots have become part of everyday life, causing problems to motorists and the road network around us. The Highways Agency is responsible for managing, maintaining and improving the strategic road network and focuses on alleviating traffic congestion and improving road safety. Alongside the work that we deliver for the Highways Agency and their contractors and consultants, we also undertake a significant amount of works for the Local Authorities, Consulting Engineers and Contractors that keep our local road network alive.

Client SuccessSilvertown Tunnel – East London

Our client required a PAS 128 M4Pb GPR survey of the survey area either side of the Thames estuary near to the O2 stadium in East London to enable the planning and design of utility diversions and connections for the new Silvertown Tunnel.

The underground utility survey findings were located on site using a combination of Electromagnetic Location and Mobile GPR, with all locations being mapped using a total station to the topographical survey.

To meet PAS128 M4Pb specification, the GPR data was captured using a vehicle mounted Multi Array GPR unit to provide 100% GPR coverage of the survey area.

Undertaking the GPR survey using a vehicle mounted unit and carrying it out concurrently with the Electro-Magnetic survey element reduced the requirement for Traffic Management and minimised the impact on the road network.

It also allowed us to capture the required data much quicker than using traditional hand-push methods, making it a much more cost effective solution for our client.
