As a petrochem specialist, NMC was awarded the resurfacing project at a popular petrol station situated on the busy A90 near Dundee in Scotland. Following a site visit by NMC to evaluate the repairs the decision was made by our client to replace the 2,250m² area.
With the popularity of this petrol station and the amount of traffic this forecourt sees in a single day, the surface course leading to and from the forecourt and the HGV lane was in dire need of repair. Large pot holes and surface cracking were visible and would eventually lead to site health and safety issues if not corrected. NMC was tasked with resurfacing the forecourt with minimal disruption to business and visitors.
Due to the nature of the site and the number of cars driving into the forecourt every minute it was imperative that the works were to be carried out through the night, not to disrupt the forecourts trading too much through the busy weekday. To complete the works safely the forecourt was closed to HGV traffic during maintenance. Our teams prepared a six -shift work plan consisting of five-night shifts beginning at 9pm, to plane and replace the existing damaged asphalt. The petrol station has its own separate HGV lane and filling area that was 50% of the works, due to the type of vehicles using this lane the defective surface was planed to a depth of 210mm allowing a 100mm base course, 60mm binder course and a 50mm surface course to strengthen the lane and provide longevity to support the weight of the vehicles. The other 50% of resurfacing was around the forecourt for smaller vehicles, this was planed to a depth of 50mm to ensure the defected areas were removed and the area level before resurfacing with an SMA 10 surface course. The site was completed with fresh thermoplastic white lining to match the existing layout, before reopening completly as scheduled.
