Stuntney Drought Scheme Case Study

Project Overview

Service: Earthworks
Project: Stuntney Drought Scheme
Location: Stuntney, Ely
Client: Skanska Construction UK Ltd
Programme: Single Weekend (Including Overnight): 38 lorry days & over 500 hours of labour
Value: £120,000

The Cambridgeshire Drought Scheme aims to repair more than 40 miles of drought damaged roads in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough with the Mick George Group responsible for improvements on six routes in and around Cambridge.

In its entirety, the scheme includes 21 sections of road affected by severe weather conditions and owes largely to an investment of £6.25million from the Department for Transport, Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough County Council, respectively.

Stuntney Drought Scheme

The road reconstruction project in Stuntney which was originally planned to incur a significant road closure for a 5-week period, was successfully delivered by the Mick George Group in just one single weekend. In fact, the project was completed with five-hours to spare from the revised programme. This included all pre-site works of crushing and screening material, before preparing the road ready for tarmacking.

The major road reconstruction included repairs down to foundation layers, and consisted of maintenance to vegetation, drainage, signage and road markings along the specified routes.

The Mick George Group are acknowledged as one of the leading Bulk Earthworks contractors in the Anglia and East Midlands region, trusted to take care of some of the most complex and challenging enabling projects nationally.

When it comes to Earthworks requirements, there really are no limits on our expertise and experience.
