The scope of works included manual planting on some steep motorway embankments as well as tree and shrub shelters. Major vegetation clearance including tree clearance and pruning. Installation of various types of fencing including demarcation/temporary fencing, timber post and rail, security compound fencing as well as environmental barrier.
Packages of work were split between the Civils Contractor and Staffordshire County Council and took place on a major junction, partly operated by the local authority and partly by the DBFO trunk road maintainer.
