Chapter 8 Compliant Services

UBU Environmental Ltd are fully equipped and highly experienced in all aspects of road and resurfacing support for both new road construction and existing road repair contracts.  Our top of the range fleet of sweepers and jet vac whale tankers will ensure that your job is completed on time and to the highest standard. This is imperative when jobs are subject to traffic management restrictions and therefore time-critical. Our dedicated resurfacing operatives have many years’ experience providing road sweeping services to customers and each job is given the same high level of attention. We have developed excellent and long-standing relationships with planing gangs simply based upon delivery and reliability which is key to these contractors. 

For preparation works, our road sweepers can keep highways and roads clear of any debris which ensures there are no blockages to roadside grids and drains, preventing any build-ups of water on the road surface. This, in turn, keeps roads clear of such dirt which helps to maintain the condition and lifespan of the asphalt. We can provide risk assessments which are specific to all chapter 8 works.
