Customer: Highways England - M23 Smart Motorway Project
Client: Kier Group
Site: M23 Junctions 8-10
Scope of works: Upgrading the 11 mile (18km) stretch of the M23 near Gatwick Airport, between junction 8 near Merstham and junction 10 at Copthorne, to an all-lane running smart motorway.
Commencement Date: July 2018
L Lynch Plant Hire & Haulage was appointed by Kier to aid the excavation and removal of spoil and muckaway from the M23 as well as help achieve the overall objectives of the project, namely :
"The M23 smart motorway started its journey in 2018 and enlisted the help of professional contractors who shared the strategy behind leading the industry in delivering a first class service not only for our client but for our customers also. We needed likeminded contractors who would become part of the SMP family and be open to new and innovative ideas whilst working alongside us to deliver 17km of new road. Lynch have worked tirelessly to provide a service that is top class and not only that but have been instrumental in providing training and support for all our staff regardless of parent company. The Thumbs up training they undertook on site, has been contributory in making our site and works safe for all to use with a confidence that safety is paramount.
We would like to thank Lynch for all their efforts and for embracing our work ethics and culture and working with us to ensure a safe and collaborated project on the M23."
