CDF PC2 Eastern Framework

M1 Eastern Framework

Client:

VolkerFitzpatrick

Location:

M1 Motorway

Project Description

The backbone scheme for the framework was the replacement of 1539 new energy efficient LED lanterns on the M1 Motorway between Junction 6 and Junction 12.

This was carried out on nights under planned sectional closures which had to be resourced efficiently to obtain the maximum output but controlled to maintain the costs.

MSF deployed multiple MEWP gangs, electricians and ground men, supported with competent supervision who liaised with VolkerFitzpatrick on site to ensure continued progress.

In conjunction with this operation, several other signage and electrical schemes were carefully integrated to complete the scope of works ahead of schedule by over 4 weeks.

These involved the installation of vehicle activated signage and challenging civils works including thrust boring underneath the carriageway to replace a redundant duct crossing to maintain power to lighting columns.

MSF has worked closely with VolkerFitzpatrick in the planning, delivery and handover of the CDF PC2 – Eastern Framework including the M1 J6a to 12 LED lighting upgrade project over a four month period. The project involved the disconnection of existing lighting units and upgrading of 1539 lanterns to new energy efficient LED replacements. Other packages included the installation of traffic signs, vehicle activated signs and civils work such as thrust-boring underneath the A6 to replace a redundant duct crossing for street lighting cables. Given the limited road space availability, it was essential that the site teams worked collaboratively to plan and deliver this priority scheme. The MSF team brought their considerable expertise and knowledge to the project and by using in-house labour and equipment were able to deliver a high-quality product on time to budget with an excellent health and safety performance.
