A127 Southend Arterial Road

Forefront Utilities was engaged by North London Gas Alliance to carry out 20km of mains abandonment and 10km of gas mains replacement under the central reservation on a stretch of the A127. This is also known as the Southend Arterial Road, the main thoroughfare between London and Southend-on-Sea.

This job was scheduled to take 18 months, but Forefront redesigned the replacement work which resulted in completion in 12 months - providing a substantial cost saving to the client.
