Grantham Market Place Contract Won

Bow’s were one of several major contractors who had been working closely with Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) over the last few months preparing proposals for LCC’s latest Town Centre improvement scheme valued at £1.5m; so when the news finally arrived that Thomas Bow City Asphalt had been awarded the contract the management team were delighted.

To be constructed over three phases, the works will commence in the heart of Grantham and will encompass the busy Market Place before extending through Westgate to the junction of Wide Westgate. The third and final phase will recommence at the junction of the Market Place and Conduit Street and continue throughout the entire length of Union Street to the junction of North Street.

Contracts Manager, Brian White will be managing the construction of this project. Brian and his team benefit from extensive experience working on similar projects within heavily populated City and Town centres, where both traffic and pedestrian management are of critical importance to ensure the safe delivery of the works. Brian will be working closely with local businesses and residents, liasing with them regarding the progress of our works and ensuring that effective communications are maintained with them and other stakeholders throughout the construction phase.

Moving forward, the high quality Yorkstone paving materials specified by LCC have already been ordered and are expected to arrive on site prior to the mobilisation of the construction team on 13th June 2011.
