Working in a particularly beautiful part of South Devon, a hand lining and line marking extruder gang recently completed some work on the A379 which connects Dartmouth with Kingsbridge.
The beautiful and distinctive setting of this road which runs beside Slapton Sands will be easily recognisable from the photos to anybody who has ever had the pleasure of travelling along this stretch.
Unfortunately, the road, due to its position often falls victim to bad weather, with Storm Emma in March wreaking havoc across the area. Unavoidably, a stretch of the road had to be closed while structural assessments and repairs were organised.
Now that this work has been completed, LMS Highways crews were organised to restore line markings to the new carriageway.
As you can see from the photos we were blessed with good weather and our crews certainly enjoyed their trip to this location.
Our own highly capable line marking extruder was used to provide centre and edge markings, providing a fast application of the thermoplastic material. LMS Highways line marking extruder makes light work of laying down centre and edge markings on main roads, trunk roads and motorways. Line widths of 100mm, 150mm and 200mm flat line marking and rib lines of 150mm or 200 mm can be provided with remarkable efficiency - performance equivalent of 7 kilometres per hour.
As the extruder is towed by one of our regular lining trucks, a hand laying crew complemented the extruder work by providing give way markings and various other markings and symbols.
The road is expected to be opened to traffic shortly providing a much needed link between the coastal communities and local businesses in the area.
Work carried out October 2018 in Slapton.

The LMS crews recently visited Tiverton, Devon to deliver a variety of line marking throughout the beautiful grounds of Blundells Boarding School.
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.
Busy high-street in Newquay receives imprinted surfacing which offers a fantastic, zero maintenance alternative to block paving in urban areas.
We've recently had the pleasure of remarking several large Tesco store car parks across the South West and Wales including sites in Burnham on Sea, Brislington and Gloucester working on behalf of a major contractor.
We recently had the pleasure of visiting the luxury 5 star Bovey Castle Hotel
, to provide essential lining throughout the grounds.
The LMS Highways crews always enjoy working on a fresh tarmac surface so when requested to provide a variety of markings on a newly surfaced car park, we couldn't resist!
Having recently visited the busy holiday park in Devon to provide various line markings, we were thrilled to hear Cofton Holidays
would like us to return for a second visit.
In Summer 2018, LMS Highways ran a competition for local schools to win playground line marking.
