Asbestos Surveys of Highway Infrastructure

With much of the UK highways infrastructure being 20th Century post war construction asbestos containing materials were in common use. One of the biggest risks associated with renewal schemes, repair and maintenance of highways are the hidden dangers of Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) and other hazardous materials contained within the structures and other assets.

We are able to couple this service with a variety of other investigations to provide a cost effective and low risk service to our clients maximising the use of traffic management and managing risk of disturbing ACMs.

Our Highways services include:

Refurbishment and Demolition Asbestos Surveys in accordance with CG105

Lucion Infrastructure has a team of experienced surveyors specifically trained and authorised to undertake surveys of Highways assets. With over 15 years experience in this sector we have built up an extensive knowledge of the materials used and their application. With our in-house Civils capability we can design surveys targeted at the clients needs and provide a turnkey operation without the need for support from other contractors for excavations and reinstatement.

Pavement Surveys

Coring and trial pit investigations of structure decks / carriageway surfacing.

Bridge Joint Investigations

We undertake dimensional surveys of bridge joints and work with specialist installers to make recommendations regarding future remedial work and joint selection. This is particularly useful when combined with an asbestos survey of the bridge deck and joints.

Service Identification and location. 

Within structures, carriageways and verges we carry out trial pit investigations to identify the type, size and location of services whilst surveying for asbestos and other contaminants.

What are my responsibilities?

If you are the duty holder, you are required to manage your asbestos risks in line with the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR) 2012 and CG105 Asbestos Management issued by the UKs trunk road agencies.
