We were contracted to build the access road into the National Grid’s newly built sub-station at Kensal Green.

The works included:

  • laying 350m of kerbs
  • preparing road formation level to total road area of 2,200m2
  • laying asphalt over four days in two layers 60mm AC20 DBM base course and 40mm HRA 55/10 surface course
  • 100m of white lining within the sub-station
  • installing granite drainage chippings to 50mm depth over an area of 400m2.

We also carried out asphalt patch reinstatement on the Canal Way access road.Kensal Green substation

We completed the access road in five weeks. It was ready before the sub-station was commissioned in early July 2017.
