Road Widening & Haunching

Road Widening & Haunchworks

Historically the main areas of use for our Sidewinders® has been road widening and road haunch reconstruction. These operations have been carried out predominantly on A, B and C roads (including dual carriageways) at county level.

Our Sidewinders® are equally suited to working within the trunk road network and local authority schemes both rural and urban. The versatility of our Sidewinders® permits the placing and grading of all levels of construction including granular capping and sub-base materials as well as hot base, binder and surface courses, crossing the boundary between civils and surfacing contractors alike.
