VolkerLaser carries out the replacement and repair of joints that reduce the impact of stresses caused by traffic, preventing cracks and faults in the road surface.
Joints fail for several reasons; they can deteriorate due to high volumes of traffic over a prolonged period, or poorly specified or applied joints can become unsealed, allowing water ingress to the road base or underlying structure.
As part of the Dovehouse Lane Bridge project, half joints required a temporary access solution which was designed and installed by VolkerLaser. The access solution consisted of an independent cantilevered scaffold at either end of the bridge. The access allowed VolkerLaser in conjunction with the project manager access to remove and to survey the existing structure prior to the removal of any concrete.
