Leicester City Council Highway Works
Thomas Bow City Asphalt were delighted to continue their work across the region with their latest project with Leicester City Council. The scheme involved carriageway improvements at a variety of sites across the city including Coleman Road, Mansfield Street, and further carriageway works at Saffron Lane and the Welford / Victoria Park Road junction.
Managing Director Alistair Bow commented, “We were delighted to secure this contract with Leicester City Council as it allowed us to demonstrate our ability to operate using different technologies in surfacing and sound management practices to deliver a high-quality job for the client.”
The works included the use of BBA HAPAS clause 942 Thin Surface Asphalt over a concrete surface which provides a durable and high-quality surface. Glasgrid® layer was laid under the wearing course to dissipate stresses horizontally on the road and prolong the life of the surface course.
The project, overseen by Contracts Director Alex Gardner, required careful traffic management around hospitals and local sports fixtures in these busy city centre locations to ensure that disruption was minimized. Close liaison with the client ensured that the works were carried out in line with their requirements. Alex commented, “We’re really pleased to be working with Leicester City Council and look forward to continuing this in future.”
A well-established company of more than 147 years, Thomas Bow City Asphalt carry out surfacing works across the Midlands and South Yorkshire in both the public and private sector. The group now employs upwards of 120 people located close to the headquarters in Nottingham.
