Specialist Surfacing is expected to carry out various road maintenance and repair projects for a total of four ports in Humber, and this includes Hull, Grimsby, Immingham, and Goole. The contract or agreement, which has a budget of millions of pounds, has been awarded by ABP to Specialist Surfacing due to the fact that the company has had a long history with ABP and has worked with it on a good number of road resurfacing projects in the past. 

The importance of the Humber ports 

Associated British Ports is known for being the largest operator of ports in the United Kingdom, with a total of 21 ports in its network across the country. The ports of ABP on the Humber are known to contribute an astounding £2.2 billion to the economy of the UK every single year. Additionally, the ports under the ABP bring forth a total of 33,000 jobs for individuals and are able to deal with over 65 million tonnes in regards to cargo.

Specialist Surfacing is definitely excited and enthusiastic about the project. Scott Morse, the Managing Director of Specialist Surfacing, states that Associated British Ports is one of the firm’s biggest clients and they have been able to establish a strong partnership when it comes to the maintenance of surfaces and roads in prior projects and schemes. Mr. Morse adds that Specialist Surfacing is very pleased to secure the contract (which remains exclusive), and it is also pleased to know that its investment in more modern fleets and a more skilled workforce has resulted in contracts like these, which are not only complex, but huge, challenging, and rewarding as well.
What is expected from Specialist Surfacing? 

Under the terms of the contract, Specialist Surfacing is expected to perform road repair and maintenance for the private and public highways in the four major ports in Humber. The contract also includes repair for all the zones for pedestrians in the ports, which includes car parks, footpaths, and other important operational sections such as storage facilities, fertiliser storage areas and sheds, and other areas and surfaces which take on a high degree of stress through excessive or extreme weight.   

Apart from obvious road resurfacing, maintenance, and repair works, Specialist Surfacing will also provide important communications assistance to Associated British Ports, particularly where proper traffic management during road works is concerned. Specialist Surfacing is expected to provide ABP with relevant information to make sure there is continuity in port operations during repair and maintenance schedules.
