Grass cutting – Taunton Dean Borough
We’re delighted to announce that Blackdown Environmental have successfully won the grass cutting contract in the Taunton Dean Borough, for the Skanska Highways maintenance team in Somerset.
The partnership between Somerset County Council and Skanska is the UK’s longest running maintenance partnership, starting in 1996. The contract maintains 4,150 miles of carriageway and 1,360 miles of footway, including all of the associated grass and vegetation cutting.
This will be our 5th year of working on this area, and we’re looking forward to getting our plant and equipment mobilised to site and delivering the 7km of vegetation clearance works.
We will have 2 tractors and side-arm flails working full time from May through to September, helping to maintain the condition of the network.
