GW Highways - Reactive Works

15 May 2023

Another great example of how GW Highways continue to improve outcomes for the communities in which we operate!

Below are some before and after images of a reactive scheme that was deemed safety critical, where GW Highways mobilised at short notice to permanently renew the pavement on behalf of our client Kent County Council.

Byron Lovell (IEng CIHT) Lovell from Kent County Council said, “This winter saw some freezing cold temperatures which significantly contributed to the number of potholes and damage on our roads. Temporary repairs were carried out to the A28 at Chartham, but the continued bad weather meant the temporary repairs broke up causing further damage. In line with KCCs commitment to making sure our roads are suitable to use and whilst this section of road was due for full resurfacing in the 2023/24 financial year, GW Highways were able to react quickly within a week and carry out this work alongside our countywide programme to bring this forward to address the serious conditions created by the poor weather. Another excellent job completed in quick succession and on time by GW Highways!”

The road had reached end of life and had been temporarily filled with potholes due to the recent weather conditions, so this was down to GWH to build back better.

A local resident said, “What a difference your team has made, it looks so much better and is a pleasure to drive on – Thank you!”

We don’t just maintain; we build back better.
