Last month we detailed BS Steels’s involvement with preparations for the introduction of free-flow tolls at the Dartford Crossing. The following video, from the Highways Agency, shows the work to install the steel charging and signage gantries.

Our team’s work to install the signage on top of the gantries can be seen most clearly around the 1 minute 45 second mark, as they unload the signage and it is craned into place.

The video highlights, above all, the disruption that such work would create if carried out during the day. Hence the necessity of close coordination with other contractors, and operation within tight, defined time windows to minimise disruption to road users.

BS Steels is a Tier 3 recommended contractor with Connect Plus, and regularly partners framework and other contractors, including Osborne, Balfour Beatty and Atkins. We have a growing track record for effective delivery of both scheduled and emergency highway work. For enquiries and further information please contact Roger Slade by e-mail or on 07802 265438.
