Working on behalf of a main contractor, one of our lining crews were recently sent to Swindon to refresh the line markings in a delivery yard for a major UK department store.
As with much of what we do, preparation is a key part of the work we undertake to ensure that the actual line marking is applied to a clean and suitable surface.
Upon arrival at the site it was clear that a reasonable amount of work to remove the existing MMA based lines would be required - this was achieved by the use of a scabbler which grinds down the existing markings to the concrete surface.
Upon completion of the scabbling, the waste was swept up and collected ready for the line marking process to commence.
The customer had already decided that they required a different layout to the previous lines so once this was clarified to the exact requirements, our crew carefully measured up and applied chalk guide marks.
The team then applied a 'tack coat' to enable thermoplastic material to bind to the rough concrete surface securely. After this, it was just a case of applying the lines which was a relatively quick process after a lengthy preparation time.
As you can see, the result is a clearly marked, safe and secure area for the store to receive deliveries.
Work carried out January 2019 in Swindon.

The LMS crews recently visited Tiverton, Devon to deliver a variety of line marking throughout the beautiful grounds of Blundells Boarding School.
LMS Highways provides essential line marking throughout Center Parcs Longleat Forest which is situated in the beautiful Longleat Estate in Warminster.
Whilst most the country is in lock down and many places remain closed, LMS Highways crews have been making use of the empty roads and car parks.
For many businesses having a car park lined or line markings refreshed can be a challenging task due to the inability to completely close off these areas to customers and staff. Usually this means our crews have to work around cars, cordoning off areas at a time. This can become quite timely and sometimes affect their ability to complete the job that day.
It’s easy for us to take living in Devon for granted... but jobs like this make us fall in love with our county all over again! Surrounded by rolling hills and the beautiful North Devon coastline our crew spent a few days implementing various line markings for a valued customer.
Safety markings are essential within potentially dangerous environments such as a busy warehouse with moving equipment like forklift trucks.
Due to this, a Bridgewater based company required various markings across their site. Our Newton Abbot crews installed new and refreshed safety markings throughout their warehouse and service yard.
