Drain Repairs, Excavations & Installations

Drainage Repairs

Do you require a complete drainage excavation as opposed to the more conventional CIPP or CIPR drain repairs?  Our highly trained civils drainage teams have extensive practise fitting first class drainage systems throughout the UK.

Trained in accordance with RASWA standards our staff can work on any highway network in the UK.

Using the latest CCTV technology and equipment to investigate sewers and drains we can quickly identify and locate your problem. Our highly qualified CCTV operators use state-of-the-art equipment delivering high-resolution images to find the safest, most effective way to complete the drainage repairs or restoration.

If you have a damaged sewer or drainage system, it is advisable to get it fixed right away. It can contribute to other problems such as undermining the structural integrity of the surrounding area. This can cause poor sanitation and severely disrupting water flow, creating an unhealthy and unsafe environment.

We ensure that all our civil drain engineers are fully trained in all aspects of street works and traffic management as standard.

Meeting all the latest health and safety requirements, our excavations are completely safe for our engineers, the general public and the environment alike.

Reasons for Drain Excavation

There are many reasons why you may require a complete drainage excavation including:

Subsidence, resulting in pipe disconnection.
Tree root infestation of pipe or drainage system.
Incorrect installation / material of pipework.
Inappropriate soil conditions.

Project type:
CCTV Drainage Survey, Drain Cleansing and De-Silting

A64, North and West Yorkshire


Reactive, complete solution to remove blockage from a vital culvert on a stretch of highway. Subscan worked throughout the night to minimise disruption to local community.

Subscan were appointed on emergency works as a vital culvert was blocked under the A64, causing major flooding across the highway. As the only major transport link from Leeds to the East Coast, the drainage solution caused a huge problem to the general public.

Our team were tasked in removing all excess water on the highway using our fleet of jet vac tankers. Once all of the water was removed our team completed a detailed CCTV drainage survey to locate the blockage. The culvert required de silting and cleansing to restore the flow to the structure.

The works were carried out over three nights shifts and 8 tonnes of silt removed from site.  All flow was restored, and the highway was back to full operation.
