Fantastic news – The Stanton Bonna Aqua-Slot drain has won an award for the “pioneering Aqua-Slot drain developed for the M6 motorway upgrade between junctions 13 and 15″.
The West Midlands Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) awards were held at the end of March and Highways England together with Kier entered the Stanton Bonna Aqua-Slot in the Best Innovation Award – and it WON!
The judges were impressed by the development of the precast drainage system to reduce installation times, costs and network disruption.
They commented: “This required early contractor involvement at various levels within the supply chain to make sure procurement, manufacturing and construction of the units were phased efficiently and safely. The reduced timescales and installation rates benefited the end-user and was only possible by this collaborative and innovative approach“.
Kier are currently installing the Aqua-Slot linear drainage system on the M6 J13 to J15.
