Background

Howard Civil Engineering has been awarded a £1m contract to assist our client, Galliford Try, with upgrading Engine Shed Lane and Ings Lane in Skipton to a standard suitable for adoption by the Local Highway Authority.

This project will remedy the poor vehicular access to Engine Shed Lane, Ings Lane and The Sidings Business Park and address the issues of water management along Ings Beck, which flows through the existing industrial estate adjacent to Ings Lane.

To provide the necessary width to upgrade Ings Lane, a 150m stretch of Ings Beck is to be culverted from near to the junction of Engine Shed Lane and Ings Lane extending downstream to immediately west of the PA Thorpe entrance.

Our works involve the installation of precast concrete culverts and associated access chambers in a live watercourse, adjacent to an existing highway. This project will see us working on active highways which service approximately 50 local businesses and must remain open to traffic at all times.

Scope

  • Install 150m of precast concrete culverts and associated access chambers in a live watercourse, adjacent to an existing highway
  • Control and manage the existing watercourse, including the design and implementation of a flexible over-pumping solution
  • Managing the delivery, lifting, and installation of large pre-cast concrete culvert units, weighing up to eight tonnes each
  • Co-ordinating work around various service diversions

Trust us to deliver your project on time and on budget
