A585 Windy Harbour – Project Completion

February saw the successful completion of the A585 Windy Harbour project close to Blackpool, working in collaboration with client, Kier and material supplier, Tarmac.

The project involved the installation of approx. 6km of Surface Water Channel (SWC) as well as associated outfalls constructed over several planned visits due to the complexity of the project work phases.

Our first visit commenced as long ago as the end of November 2022 and ran through to Christmas. There were 3 small visits throughout 2023 in January, March, and November, before our final visit which commenced at the end of January 24.

With projects like Windy Harbour, where we attend site for short visits, it is imperative that the site is prepared correctly for us as there is little to no time in the programme to mitigate any delays. We also need to ensure that we hit the ground running, with little to no delay, so a quality concrete supply is essential.

Both Kier and Tarmac played their parts in ensuring each visit to site was short, sharp and sweet. This collaboration allowed us to meet our programme, meet our customer needs, and move on successfully to the next project.

The completion of the Windy Harbour project follows other successful schemes working with Kier and we hope to continue this successful collaboration in the future.

We also appreciate receiving positive feedback from our customers on how we performed. This allows us to feedback to our teams, ensure we are meeting our customer needs, along with building and developing relationships. Our client stated:-

“Working with Extrudakerb on the A585 has been a great pleasure, Extrudakerb worked with us in many ways help install approx. 6000 meters of SWC works on time and in programme.”

“The gangs on site set a high standard with health and safety and always bought to attention any issues that arose in the correct manner and correct procedure.”
