Backbone of Britain Gets Route One Repairs

04 November 2015

The back bone of Britain, the M6 motorway, recieves specialist treatment from Route One Highways as they are awarded a sub-contract from Cubby Construction as part of the Highways England major roads improvements initiative.

To save what could have been huge travel disruption on the motorway Route One have already completed some of the programmed work in just two weekends.

Working over two Saturday nights Route One, working on the section between between junction 32/33, prepared the exposed bridge deck by fine milling and then by enclosed/open blasted in readiness for the installation of the waterproofing and buried joints. The prepared surface was then primed and waterproofed before being re-surfaced before the heavier volume of traffic hit on the Monday. On the second Weekend the Asphaltic plug joints were installed and the works completed.

Darryl Taylor, Commercial Manager at Route One Highways says:

“Working with Cubby Construction is a pleasure and a first for us. We have been privileged enough to be able to demonstrate to Cubby how we can be responsive and reactive during strict working schedules. We very much look forward to continuing to work on the M6 during the next phase of the works and helping Cubby fulfill their own contractual arrangements successfully.”
