SCOPE DELIVERED

GENERAL OVERVIEW

Installation of new traffic signals at Harlow Moor Road junction & Pannal Ash Road junction. Reconstruction of footways to accommodate shared use cycle path and altered kerbline. Carriageway resurfacing & line markings, installation of black, green bad buff anti-skid. Installation of new street light columns.

SCOPE DELIVERED

The works were to deliver the widening of Otley Road on the approach to Harlow Moor Road to facilitate the creation of a designated left turn lane on the western approach to Harlow Moor Road and designated right turn lane on the eastern approach to Harlow Moor Road.

In addition, there was the implementation of a designated off-road cycleway along Otley Road between Harlow Moor Road and Cold Bath Road utilising the existing footways in addition to the widening of the existing footways and creation of on-road cycleway facilities.

Both of the above involved upgrading the existing signalised junctions with new signals. Works also included site clearance, new kerbing, new footways, revised road markings and signing, street lighting, carriageway surfacing and drainage.

SCOPE DELIVERED

The works comprised the reconstruction of the footpath using Hull City Council supplied natural aggregate concrete Kellen paving and also the replacement of kerbs including a section of HCC supplied granite kerbs and channels, and some concrete.

In addition, works also involved the installation of multiple new gullies (connected into the existing sewer) to provide adequate drainage.

A Belisha beacon pedestrian crossing, including speed calming carriageway table, was installed outside of the new Arco building entrance to provide a safe crossing point for pedestrians.

The whole length of carriageway was resurfaced from beneath Myton Bridge to the Queen Street junction, including deep reconstruction in failed areas. Surfacing works also included a section of Queen Street by the A63 traffic lights, which also required concrete repairs prior to laying the new surface.

In addition to the above, an isolated section of the Queen Street carriageway (towards the pier) was also resurfaced during the main carriageway works.

The kerbline was altered at the junction with Queen Street to accommodate the carriageway layout redesign. This removed the junction at Humber Street with Queen Street, with new give way markings installed from the Queen Street south approach to the junction.

The scheme also included the installation of the Heald bollard safety system at the entrance to the busy stretch of Humber Street containing bars and other businesses. The Matador sliding bollard system prevents unwarranted vehicle access while being able to be opened remotely to allow authorised access.

GENERAL OVERVIEW

This project involved the resurfacing of the carriageway from Hotham Road South to County Road South.

SCOPE DELIVERED

The works were completed under a road closure in two phases and there was a lot of involvement from the PBS site engineer during the planning of the existing tarmac and installation of new surfacing to ensure everything was laid to the correct level.

Additional works also involved resurfacing the stretch of footpath from the shops to the school. We came across a lot of soft spots that we quickly had to dig out and stone up for ready for the tarmac surfacing.

GENERAL OVERVIEW

This project consisted of carriageway reconstruction and resurfacing to Holderness Road (between Diadem Grove and Ganstead). The works were carried out in two phases, with full traffic management, as detailed below:

Phase 1 (Outbound Holderness Road)

All of the works were carried out under a full road closure of the outbound carriageway. Access to the BP petrol station on the outbound side was maintained at all times via the inbound carriageway.

Phase 2 (Inbound Holderness Road)

All of the works were carried out under a full road closure of the inbound carriageway. Access for residents was maintained at all times via the outbound carriageway.

GENERAL OVERVIEW

We were appointed by Hull County Council to carry out major improvement works to improve the routes for motorists at Anlaby Road, the main arterial route leading into Hull City Centre situated within an urban residential area. The dual carriageway is a critical bus route, combined with a number of retail, local businesses and several schools upon the approach into the centre. A live railway bridge also runs over the middle section of the road.

SCOPE OF THE WORKS:

Measuring a total length of 1.4 miles, the programme was split into 22 phases over a 25-week duration. The scope of works consisted of:

CHALLENGES & SOLUTIONS

There were many levels challenges on site and the scheme was on a busy urban location on Little Coates Road which is During the works an unforeseen longitudinal crack was discovered in the centre of the main section of the existing pavement, a total length of 150m, which crossed between running lanes. This presented a challenge to our proposed methodology as it compromised the safe working zone, as a result the team were unable to achieve the 0.5m clearance from live traffic. Working effectively with Hull City Council we requested an emergency road closure, this collaborative approach enabled swift agreement and implementation within 24 hours, avoiding significant delays to the programme.

RESULT

Works were completed with zero incidents and, despite scope increase, completion was achieved ahead of the agreed programme with zero defects at handover.

GENERAL OVERVIEW

As part of North East Lincolnshire Council’s (NELC) annual maintenance programme, we secured the package of works to construct a new and improved roundabout. The scope of works consisted of resurfacing works around various road sections including: the new B1444 roundabout, Little Coates Road and the A1136. The works consisted of:

CHALLENGES & SOLUTIONS

There were many levels challenges on site and the scheme was on a busy urban location on Little Coates Road which is adjacent to a school.  The surfacing was carried out over a series of evenings to keep disruption to a minimum and this required complex traffic management as works needed to be tied into the existing carriageways to tie in the legs of the roundabout.

RESULT

Works were completed with zero incidents and, despite scope increase, completion was achieved ahead of the agreed programme with zero defects at handover.

GENERAL OVERVIEW

The objective of this scheme was to improve pedestrian links from Northallerton High Street to the new Treadmills development. The works were located in four areas across the town centre; New Row Ginnel, Central Arcade Ginnel, Elder Road and Zetland Street.

NEW ROW GINNEL

CENTRAL ARCADE GINNEL

ELDER ROAD

ZETLAND STREET

The primary objective of this project was to create a high-quality focal point for Bridlington by the use of high-quality paving materials and landscaping.

Stage 1 required changes to Station Approach and Bridlington Station car park (the Station Plaza), together with a new road link across the disused railway sidings to the Tesco access road. A new through road from Quay Road to Hilderthorpe Road also needed to be created to reduce the risk of traffic exiting and queuing next to the level crossing on Quay Road.

The railway station car park and adjacent Tesco store had to remain operational and accessible to the public, Network Rail, Tesco staff and vehicles (e.g. taxis). Early and continuous engagement with Tesco, Network Rail and other nearby businesses played a crucial part in minimising disruption.

Our works created a predominantly one-way traffic flow and ultimately reduced the traffic movements at the Station Road/Quay Road junction. This meant that we delivered this objective successfully on time and within budget.

SCOPE OF WORKS

PROJECT HIGHLIGHT

By working closely with the client, we were able to source an alternative supplier of high-quality granite materials from the same quarries. By changing the supplier to BBS Ltd, rather than using the nominated supplier, we were able to make a saving of £50,000 for the client.

GENERAL OVERVIEW

This extensive programme of works in Cleethorpes mainly focused around the town centre and promenades. Improvements were made to the town centre streets and public spaces, whilst there was also investment in some historic buildings.

The work was carried out in four phases to cause minimal disruption to the town during peak holiday times.

Phase 1 – High Street and the top of Alexandra Road (Jan 2019 & Jul 2019)

Phase 2 – Sea View Street (Jul 2019 – Dec 2019)

Phase 3 – Sea Road and Alexandra Road junction (Sept 2019 – Dec 2019)

Phase 4 – Alexandra Road, from the junction with Sea Rd, to the junction with Sea View St (Jan 2020 – Sept 2020)

SCOPE DELIVERED

PROJECT HIGHLIGHT

A huge amount of York stone and granite was required for the project and ensuring efficient lead-in times for delivery of this was vital. Any mistake could have led to programme delays on the critical path. PBS mitigated this by working with the supplier to order materials as soon as possible and to organise phased deliveries on a ‘just in time’ basis.
