Council Highways Team In-House Solution for Line Marking Services

Case Study

Faded Line Marking

Problem

Faded Line marking

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council were looking for a more effective in-house solution for line marking services.

The Redcar and Cleveland Highways Team are responsible for maintaining and managing the road networks within the Redcar and Cleveland area, although the borough’s line marking was being delivered externally by line marking contractors.

The council were looking for a more environmentally friendly, economical and convenient method to manage and self deliver their line marking  projects across the borough.

It was important for the solution to be in line with the borough’s objective to become carbon neutral by 2030.
