JDP and Peter Savage drainage offers solution for major highway improvements

Water management specialists JDP has supplied over 47 tonnes of covers and gratings from specialist manufacturer Peter Savage to provide effective drainage water management for a £33m highway improvement contract on the A30 near Bodmin, Cornwall.

Kier Construction was awarded the contract to dual a 4.5km section of the A30 between Temple and Higher Carblake, to provide urgent relief and ease congestion on the last section of single carriageway in this busy part of the region.

As part of an effective drainage solution JDP’s water management team supplied a variety of covers and gratings including the Savage V-Max and Savage Ultra products from its depot in Launceston. All products supplied are fully H104 compliant. The V-Max product is specifically designed for highway slip form drainage, and provides durable and easy un-obstructed access with a captive but removable grating.

JDP has an extensive range of products that provide effective drainage for highways and civil engineering works including specialist solutions for road building, retaining walls and embankments, ground stabilisation, SuDs and surface water drainage.

Through technical knowledge, and a strong relationship with the product manufacturer, JDP provided expert advice and support for Kier Construction, ensuring the most effective drainage solution for the major highway works. The project is anticipated to run for 22 months with completion in Spring 2017.
