Extension of the hire arrangements for the Temporary Vertical Containment Barriers on Soar Valley Way

Decision Maker: Director of Environment and Transport

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The TVCBs were originally installed in November 2018 as an emergency installation following a serious Road Traffic Accident.
It was essential that the TVCBs were erected immediately in order to protect road-users and to maintain two running lanes (in both directions).
The original emergency order has now expired but the hire of the TVCBs, including any relocation and removal during the repair work, will need to continue until the parapet replacement works are complete.
This is currently planned for mid-July 2019 and an extension of the hire period until the end of August 2019 would be appropriate.


To extend the hire arrangements for the Temporary Vertical Containment Barriers (TVCBs) which are currently being utilised on Soar Valley Way in order to protect the damaged bridge parapets.
