Riggotts get the Eurotunnel up to speed

29th April 2019by galinar84News


Requiring minimum downtime, and aware of Riggotts’ high standard of workmanship, McCrory Limited called for the return of Riggotts to complete works at the Channel Tunnel Folkstone site.

The team carried out an array of thermoplastic work including over 2800 metres of lining, 48 letters and numbers, give way markings, 19 arrows and 130 metres squared of solid crossing pads.

Since opening in May 1994, the Eurotunnel has provided direct service to France in as little as 35 minutes from Folkestone to Pas-de-Calais.

The heavily trafficked area needed to be up and running again in as little time as possible to prevent delays and allow people to continue their travels. The Riggotts team tailored an efficient plan where the team worked around the clock at less-busy times to ensure there were minimum disruptions to the service.

Clear line markings allow the users of the roll-on roll-off service to navigate the ports with ease, improving the efficiency, safety and capacity of the link.

To ensure the longevity of the new markings the site was prepared with Tack Coat Primer before the application – ensuring the marking adhered correctly to the smooth concrete.

A spokesperson for the McCrory Ltd group commented on the works completed by the Riggotts team:

“I would like to acknowledge and convey to you that we are very impressed with the hard work and effort put in by your staff who attended the Eurotunnel site last week.

We were very pleased with their understanding of, the quality of and their positive attitude towards the work.

We look forward to seeing them again soon on the next project.”
