B&A Transport & Recycling have been working closely with Balfour Beatty on the Central Reservation Works starting between Junction 19 to 20 as part of the £848 million upgrade to the M4.
The works completed include classification and relocation of the soils and hardcore from within the central reservation to suitable permitted locations. Our dedicated and experienced team have been vital to planning the efficient movement of these materials With over 1,500 loads to complete, a steady reliable service is essential.
To ensure we have covered all bases B&A started the project with an overnight assessment. This ensured the project started smoothly minimising any potential surprises. This project has been in-depth from the very start but has yet to present anything that B&A cannot accommodate. Detailed testing was completed in order for us to create a fully tailored plan to maximise efficiency and accuracy throughout.
B&A Stone Supplies will soon follow suit with multiple deliveries of Quarried Type 1 which will be used as the underlying sub-base.
Upon completion, this section of the M4 will utilise the latest technology to monitor traffic flow and set speed limits. The main aim of these improvements is to help keep traffic moving smoothly, without continually stopping and starting and therefore reduce congestion along with increasing the capacity desperately needed.
The M4 is the main route between London, the West of England and Wales connecting people, communities and businesses from across the country and carrying on average 130,000 vehicles per day.
Motorway works can be particularly complicated but with our effective pre-planning, it shows once again just how much B&A Group can be depended on.
