Demarcation Posts Salisbury Plain

Something different today.  Our job was to erect demarcation posts to mark an ancient monument and protect rare thistle plants on Salisbury Plain.
It took 575 m of posts, 1m apart, then painted with ‘hi-viz’ tops.  Now apparently this is tank proof – the posts are just a visual barrier to prevent vehicles from getting into the area in the middle.

Tree reductions in Westbury needing Chapter 8 traffic control

Today we were cutting 300m of various overhanging trees back over the main road in Westbury and will continue for the rest of the week.

The work needs “stop and go” boards for traffic control.  Because the Conservation Contractors team are qualified to  “Chapter 8” requirements, they are able to manage the traffic control in-house.

The Department for Transport has a comprehensive guide for traffic signs and management. Chapter 8 of this guide is called ‘Traffic Safety Measures and Signs for Road Works and Temporary Situations’. This is commonly referred to as the “Chapter 8 guidelines”.

Equestrian Centre all-weather riding surface

Our video clip here shows mixing in fibres for our Chippenham equestrian project.  The riding surface is sand with recycled fibres mixed in to give a high-quality riding surface in all-weather conditions. They are then spread on top and then mixed into to the sand.
