The A46 upgrade between Newark on Trent and Widmerpool in Nottinghamshire was a major undertaking for Ardee Precast Concrete. Our work commenced in October 2010 and involved providing approx 8000 lineal metres of our Type 81-2 temporary concrete barrier to the project which was moved and relocated as required in conjunction with the main contractor for the project, Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering Ltd. A large proportion of the work was carried out at night and involved preplanning and liaison with traffic management to ensure traffic free flow. We were able to achieve installation rates of up to 1000 lineal metres in a shift which involved using up to 20 trucks/trailers all of which had to be time coordinated to ensure no congestion on the live carriageway. To ensure complete flexibility and fast reaction times APC established their own yard and offices in Newton Business Park. This ensured that we were available at all times to meet the needs of the Main Contractor.
