During one of the most intensive periods of carriageway and footway surfacing work on the Island we have, in road terms alone, laid over 1,000,000 metres of carriageway surfacing, the equivalent of a road stretching from the Island to London and then onto Luton.

  • Highways PFI Contract Management
