As well as keeping customers moving en-route to and from the continent, FM Conway’s asset management team is working with Eurotunnel to keep the terminal up and running, while also supporting environmental work on the coastal landscape.
Steve Simmonds, Contracts Manager at FM Conway, comments:
“Our primary job is to ensure that the Eurotunnel service buildings, as well as the main terminals, and the connected road network are kept well maintained at all times to ensure Eurotunnel is able to deliver the best possible customer service to people travelling to and from the continent.”
The contract also covers management of Samphire Hoe – a site of special scientific interest which was reclaimed from the sea using chalk marl from the excavations of the Channel Tunnel. The asset management team maintains the site on an ongoing basis to foster biodiversity and attract indigenous plant and animal life, carrying out drainage works as required to prevent surface water pooling and ensuring the area closely mimics the surrounding landscape.
Steve Simmonds continues: “As part of our contract with Eurotunnel, our team ensures that this popular destination remains accessible and safe for visitors – requiring regular maintenance to manage and shape the landscape as it matures. Together with Eurotunnel, we’re also always looking at ways to improve the environment, introducing new features that boost biodiversity and provide more attractions for the many schools that visit.”
