Road repair, maintenance and preservation specialist Velocity has over 25 years’ experience of bringing innovation to the UK highways sector.
Velocity pioneered spray-injection patching, an innovative technique for corrective and preventative highway maintenance.
Working for local authorities and term-maintenance contractors throughout the UK, Velocity are committed to helping deliver of the challenge of maintaining our vital road network, helping to get more from allocated budgets and deliver an effective service for road-users.
Velocity Patching is a permanent repair process for potholes and other defects. A single machine and two- or three-man crew can repair up to 200 repairs per day at less than a third of the price of traditional methods. Suitable for use in both urban and rural locations, the speed of the process minimises disruption for road users and makes maintenance budgets go much further.
Alongside Velocity Patching, the company has recently introduced a new service, Velocity Preservation. Velocity Preservation is a preservative product that ‘locks in’ the current condition of highways that are in good condition, preventing the deterioration that causes potholes and extending their lifespan.
Dominic Gardner, Managing Director of Velocity, said, “We’re looking forward to working with APSE members to share best practices we have experienced with local authorities that have adopted our processes.
“As an experienced contractor, we work hard to bring mutually beneficial partnerships with our customers, helping them to achieve their goals.
“We continually invest in our people and technology to deliver high-quality, safe services. Every year we repair over half-a-million defects on Britain’s roads, delivering safer and smoother journeys for road users, saving millions for taxpayers and helping to mitigate the climate emergency by reducing CO2 emissions associated with road repairs by 90% compared to traditional methods.”
Paul O’Brien, APSE Chief Executive, spoke of his enthusiasm for this new partnership, “As a market-leader in road maintenance, APSE members will benefit enormously from Velocity’s expertise and cutting-edge technology; helping them make significant savings at a time of growing financial uncertainty. We are delighted to welcome Velocity into the APSE family!”
