Costain

Accumix worked for contractors Costain on sections of the M54 in Telford, between Junctions 3 and 4. This major project, which was carried out on behalf of Highways England and EM Highways, ran for approximately 6 months, and was completed in Spring 2015.

The objectives of the scheme were to remove and replace safety features, improve drainage and reduce noise.

The drainage improvements were also vital in helping to remove water from the road as quickly as possible, minimizing the risk of flooding and reducing spray – a key factor in improving driving conditions in wet weather.

The work was carried out using a combination of off-peak lane closures and full overnight closures with engineers working on a 24 hour basis in order to complete the project to agreed timescales.

The new surface is a key factor in improving road safety with the added advantage of generating a lower tyre noise – a major benefit to the local community.
