Our project expertise range from highway and major trunk roads schemes through to private events and utility works. We work with a range of different customer sectors delivering a service for all roads and requirements.
Major Trunk Road and Highways
Colas were contracted to provide traffic management along major roads for two contracts in Newcastle. The first contract, managed by A-One+ on behalf of Highways England was to provide temporary traffic management along a stretch of the A1, and also included the application of temporary road markings. This project included some night time lane closures and 24hr narrow lane running both on the north and southbound carriageways - though disruption was kept to an absolute minimum.
Colas were awarded the contracts due to our impressive safety statistics and extensive experiences of working in this region.
The second contract, again managed by Aone+ also involved temporary traffic management along a stretch of the A1, and the application of temporary road markings. In addition we were also involved in the design and planning of a contra flow system using high containment vehicle barriers to ensure maximum safety to road users.
