Whitehouse were appointed to undertake Gibbert Hill Road and Scarman Roundabout improvement works within Warwick University Campus, as part of our highways framework. Works involved the upgrade of one of the main entrances into the University campus, and the addition of bus laybys and shelters.
Work on Scarman Roundabout included extensive drainage alterations and the creation of four granite crossings with central islands to support multiple pedestrians and cyclists. The island approach lanes were narrowed to slow oncoming traffic.
Due to the works proximity to Warwick University, extensive traffic management plans were undertaken and agreed prior to works commencing due to the timing of the works coinciding with exam timetables. We instigated a complex Traffic Management plan which consisted of heavy duty traffic barriers, multiple diversions and road closures, minimising disruption and noise to all affected parties.
We also created two new bus laybys on the island approaches, conducted extensive resurfacing of roads & footpaths, and installed concrete and granite kerbing.
Due to temporary surfacing of the carriageway, our live Traffic Management plan ensured vehicular and pedestrian traffic disruption was kept to a minimum during the works. This scheme with extensive excavation and resurfacing in a highly trafficked area required works to be completed in a short time period which Whitehouse accomplished to the complete satisfaction of the client and the University.
