We have recently started our early works for one phase of the North Wokingham Distributor Road (NWDR) known as the ‘West of Old Forest Road’ section.

With plans for 4000 new homes to be built in Wokingham by 2026, the impact of the increase in traffic that these houses will naturally generate will be minimised by the construction of the NWDR shown on the plan to the right (or below on mobile). It is intended that the completed scheme will provide direct and convenient access to the motorway network from some of the new residential developments.

Our works for this project include the import, placement and compaction of over 60,000 tonnes of recycled fill material next to the existing railway which will form an abutment to allow the new road to span over the railway.

Due to the amount of material that is required in a relatively short space of time it means that it will come from various sources, therefore testing is a prerequisite on virtually all materials that we supply and process. In this case we have provided a laboratory on site to carry out the chemical and geotechnical testing which is staffed by two technicians, not only ensuring that the materials comply with the specification but also speeding up the testing process considerably for our client.
