Nowhere is keeping a neat environment more keenly tested than along the highways and byways, and the need for clear lines of visibility make this a safety issue as much as an aesthetic one.
Having verges which are weed free and do not cause water to pool, and hedges which are trimmed properly to ensure a clear eye-line, are as important to pedestrians as they are to drivers. CGM delivers a full highways management service using a fleet of vehicles designed specifically to address these important visual and environmental issues.
The CGM fleet of highways and environment management vehicles has been carefully chosen to tackle everything from reducing hedges in both height and width, to clearing drainage ditches and dykes. The same fleet offers options for trimming highway verges to keep everything visually neat and tidy but, very importantly, to keep obstruction of roadside signage in check by strimming around individual sign supports to ensure the ideal view.
CGM has a fully qualified team dedicated specifically to highways and environment services.
Team members have NPTC qualifications, as well as lighting and guarding certification.
Keeping the roads and paths clear of obstruction and overgrown plants is more than just chopping down weeds and hedges; it takes a full understanding of how to limit plant and hedge growth to avoid visibility hazards whilst maintaining a visually attractive roadside vista.
Inevitably, there are accidents, maintenance and repair, and events on major trunk roads which need extra roadside signage and sometimes a traffic management vehicle. CGM can provide these and help constructors, contractors and the emergency services with immediate or longer term support to ensure the safety of themselves and others.
