Dartford West Tunnel Resurfacing

Client: Connect Plus
Value: £2.5m

Jackson carried out resurfacing of the West tunnel of the Dartford Crossing as part of the framework with Connect Plus. Work included waterproofing the deck, replacing joints and ironwork, installing new drainage and resurfacing.

This project required a full closure of the tunnel and work was carried out over 15 nights. Before this project took place, repairs to the West tunnel were costing Connect Plus in the region of £1m per year. Innovative solutions implemented on this project by the team have significantly reduced this figure. The new surface cost £2.5m to install, and has been designed to last for 5-10 years. Therefore a maintenance saving of between £2.5 and £7.5 million has been achieved.

This project was also awarded the Constructing Excellence Award for Integration and Collaborative Working.
