Highways Technology Division Sheds Light on Drovers Road Project

Ringway’s Highways Technology Division is to install all street lighting and signage for the Drovers Road project for the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham.

Mark Taylor, from Highways Technology, was actively involved with Eurovia’s site team, led by Project Manager Peter Kravcak, over the past few weeks and the phase one stage is currently on course for completion by the end of August.

 

The lighting installed at Drovers Road are Thorn TRT LED Lanterns which produce greater energy savings compared to traditional SON type lanterns.

 

Mark Taylor of Highways Technology said: “it’s a pleasure working with our Eurovia Contracting and Ringway Jacobs colleagues and I look forward to being able to support future schemes for all lighting and signage requirements.”

 

Richard Fryer, Divisional Director at Highways Technology added: “This project is a great example of what Highways Technology can offer our colleagues across Eurovia, Ringway and Ringway Jacobs and it’s great to be involved in such a prestigious scheme.”

 

Highways Technology are also carrying out LED installation work for Bracknell Forest, column replacements in Shropshire and will soon be installing new columns on the Thorn Turn project in Dunstable for Eurovia Contracting.

 

The Division also provides street lighting maintenance support for the Hertfordshire, Milton Keynes and Transport for Buckinghamshire highway maintenance contracts.

 

Eurovia Contracting was awarded the £7m new build contract following ECI (early contractor involvement) discussions with the London Highways Alliance Contract (LOHAC) service provider, Ringway Jacobs, in 2016.

 

Work began in June 2016, constructing the 1.9km long and 19m wide pavement, which will incorporate the carriageway, footway and cycleway. The new road, also involves the installation of new drainage systems and other vital public utilities to support the development.

 

Building the road and the access infrastructure will enable construction traffic to come onto the site. The Eurovia and Ringway Jacobs team are working closely together to ensure the road project is on schedule, keeping the overall programme on track.

 

The overall development, covering 443 acres, will include 10,800 homes of mixed size and style, including houses and apartments.

 

There is also provision for 65,000 square metres of commercial floor space for shopping, restaurants, cafés, community and leisure facilities, healthcare and schools. Plans for large open spaces, public squares are also included and a brand new rail station with bus and river transport interchange providing excellent links to central London.
