The Project

The twin-bore tunnel under the Thames in east London will link Silvertown to the Greenwich Peninsula. The scheme aims to reduce congestion at the Blackwall Tunnel and improve the reliability and resilience of the wider road network.

As part of a greater management strategy, a car park, situated between Edmund Halley Way, West Parkside, and Millennium way was required so as not to impact the operations of the O2 Events Arena during the project’s construction.

Our Work

Toppesfield worked in alliance with FM Conway who supplied material for the project, as well as delivering the road markings. A Fuel Resistant SMA PMB surface course was used across the coach park, due to the high traffic flow of large vehicles. This material is less permeable, meaning that the area is less likely to erode when in contact with fuel, offering increased asset resilience to the client.

Working for our client, Cognition Land and Water, Toppesfield were contracted to deliver the surfacing to the new car park along with the access road and footpaths.

Over the course of four visits, Toppesfield’s teams worked to deliver over 6,500 tonnes of asphalt. Working to support their client, Toppesfield were able to bring the project back on schedule, after delays were caused earlier in the construction. By utilising their extensive resources and often operating with two crews, Toppesfield delivered on time, even though a period of adverse weather caused closure to the site.

Results & Achievements

  • Collaboration – Working in collaboration with client and supply chain partners, Toppesfield were able to bring the project back on schedule, even through a period of site closure.
  • Customer Focused – Toppesfield offered increased asset resilience to their client through using a Fuel Resistant PMB surface course.
