Case Study

A One +

Project type:
CCTV drainage survey, drain cleansing, de silting

A64, North and West Yorkshire


Reactive turnkey 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.
