Whitemountain completed works on the Skeoge Link Road.

The contract consisted of 2 km of new build dual carriageway with two roundabouts which will be used to provide an outer relief road for the city to take traffic away from the already congested network and give access to future housing development lands.

In addition to the original contract, H1B Distributor Road was completed for a private Client in conjunction with the main contract.

Earthworks commenced with 80,000 m3 of which was taken off site with the remaining 70,000m3 used as cut/fill to form the foundation of the road.

30,000 tonnes of asphalt and 25,000 tonnes of unbound material used on the scheme were supplied from the Company’s Macosquin Quarry at Coleraine.

An in–situ reinforced concrete culvert was formed on the line of the existing Skeoge River.

Street lighting and vehicle safety barriers were installed as part of the scheme and all Road Marking and High Friction Surfacing were laid “in–house”.
