Another highways contract for Lanes

Posted: Thursday 16th February 2012

National drainage specialist Lanes for Drains has been awarded a contract by Monmouthshire County Council for the reactive maintenance of roadside drains to reduce the risk of flooding.

Craig Evans, manager of the South Wales depot which won the contract for gully emptying and jetting, said that though price had been important, he felt that Lanes’ service provision and the ‘green’ credentials of its specialist equipment were equally crucial:

“Our Kaiser Whale tankers recycle the water they use during jetting operations, so they are greener and also more cost effective for the client because crews spend more time working on site and less time away from site getting fresh water supplies.

“And they are perfect for reducing the risk of potentially dangerous road conditions like ponding, with a powerful vacuumation facility to empty the gullies, and super water jets to clear and cleanse them of silt and debris build up.

“We have seen an increase in demand for the maintenance of surface drains as more and more customers aim to use best practices and comply with the commitment element of ISO environmental standards.”
