Main Engineer: Tom Lewis
Contract Type: Stage 1 to 4 Adoption project
Problem: Backlog highway adoption with no Section 38 in place; scheme stalled due to legal and landownership issues; unpaid inspection fees disputed by the developer; outstanding remedial works
Solution: Extensive negotiation works were required to determine a way to progress this scheme as several issues had been hindering the progression for many years. Acting as a key catalyst to the process JLES managed to negotiate a reduction in the inspection fees, a less onerous adoption process and resolved the legal and land ownership issues.
