Easily removable road markings

It is key to keep disruption and the impact of construction to a minimum, in relation to the local community.

When a contractor occupies an area for development, the local community could experience a number of changes and potentially feel inconvenienced or disconnected from the area that they are used too.

It is therefore very important to keep any unnecessary alternations and particularly ‘leftovers’ to a minimum when leaving the area after completion.

The example below demonstrates how a site reacted to community complaints to ensure a positive legacy:

  • The contractor had received a number of complaints on numerous sites from neighbours concerning the yellow marker paint being still in place and difficult to remove at the end of works, which was visually unappealing;
  • A new method was created using yellow sticky backed tape that was used for the same purpose;
  • The tape bonds securely to roads and hard surfaces but simply peels off when required to remove;
  • Previous paint used on grass verges can become unidentifiable and can run when using a water based spray paint;
  • The use of wooden stakes with the utility stickers attached provided the same visual notification needed for the workforce on grass verges and again could be easily removed upon completion of the works.
