When Balfour Beatty were unable to cope with daily damage to their vehicles during the construction of the A1/M1 link road, Fleet Service got them up and running again.
Balfour Beatty were starting to build the A1/M1 link road covering approximately 22Km
mainly through a green field site. They had in excess of 200 vehicle ranging from cars to
heavy commercial vehicles some of which had specialist equipment fitted to them. The main
issue was the amount of damage caused to the vehicles on a daily basis. The vehicle
manufacturer workshops were unable to cope which this large influx of work. This was
therefore having a major knock on effect on the contractor. The service delivery was the
major concern on this project and not the cost.
