Description of Works
FM Conway was commissioned by the Royal Parks to deliver a design and build project to improve the infrastructure of Richmond Park whilst maintaining the iconic look and feel.
The improvement works had to be delivered in six packages, with each package aimed at reducing disruption to the public by keeping road closures down to a minimum. Our FM Conway traffic management team ensured diversions were in place to maintain access to the park and advanced warnings of closures were issued along with an operative presence at each closure to ensure the public were kept informed.
Jeremy Cox, Principal Engineer lead the team who took a sensitive approach to maintain the look of the parks and presented a number of benefits in the design proposal. Design of the carriageway pavement was undertaken in accordance with HD 26/06 Pavement Design and Interim Advice Note 73/06 Design Guidance for Road Pavement Foundations (Draft HD25).
