To many, the name of Bethell remains synonymous with highway construction as the Company’s roots derive from the original road building business established in 1865.
Our attention to detail and reputation for quality has earned Bethell the status of being the first choice Framework Partner for a number of local authorities where we offer an unrivalled 24/7 service in maintaining highways. Our teams instinctively understand the key aspects of working in ‘live’ highway environment so that projects are delivered safely, on time and in a non-disruptive manner by minimising the impact to the operational infrastructure.
Recent years has seen substantial investment in new road surfacing equipment and staff training ensuring that the surfacing division is able to install the full spectrum of highway materials including thin surface courses to clause 942 (SHW) and full accreditation to National Highways Sector Scheme 16 enabling the Company to undertake asphalt works on the Highway Agency’s national network of major trunk roads and motorways .
Having an in-house surfacing division operating alongside our civil engineering and multi-utility teams ensures we are able to offer clients a full ‘turnkey’ solution for car parks, section 278 roadworks, traffic calming, footpath & cycleway, junction improvements and road widening schemes. This combined approach provides benefits for our customers in cost savings, reduced timescales, less logistical headaches and eliminating multi-contractor coordination.
