During March, Paving Solutions worked on 12km of the A1 motorway in two sections, which required 14,00t of asphalt to be planed out and resurfaced.
The first was Blythe to Tickhill and the second from Barnsdale Barr to Ferrybridge. Our customer Interserve placed the order in late February but stressed the work on behalf of Highways England/A1+ had to be finished by March 21st.
All the work was to be at night with cold weather and shift cancellations, and the Easter break looming. But Paving Solutions likes a challenge so Business Manager Matt Crowder coordinated a big team effort which included a lot of help from CEMEX logistics, CEMEX coating plants located in Doveholes, Lincoln, Salford and Selby and Chris in Planning (Rugby).
The One Team CEMEX enabled Paving Solutions operational gangs to lay 500T+ on most shifts and 900T a shift at their peak! They worked 27 night shifts (including Saturdays and Sundays) and 5 double shifts to complete the project on time before 31st March for a very pleased Interserve and Highways England.
David Duszczak, Estimater, commented, “Thanks again to CEMEX Logistics, CEMEX coating plants at Doveholes, Lincoln, Salford and Selby, Chris in Planning based in Rugby and the operational team who worked consecutive night shifts from the end of February to the end of March 7 times a week! You are all awesome!”
