Highways vegetation management

This week we have had two teams start on Area 7 highways vegetation management contract. We are covering both day and night shifts. Our ground teams are following our tractors with brush cutters, working closely with the traffic management. We are working on multiple sections of highway across Area 7.

Our New Holland Tractor fitted with a VERSI flail from McConnell. The design is ideal for highways, amenities and the ground-care sector. Named for the cutting versatility it offers, the VERSI-series enables operators to cut on either side of the tractor – switching from left to right and back at the touch of a button. Designed for specialists and professional contractors, the VERSI-range was originally created for highway mowing because it allows operators to safely cut both the nearside verge and the central reservation while travelling in the same direction as the traffic. The ability to switch cutting positions quickly and easily, coupled with a rotating arm and flail head offers benefits in numerous situations and enables VERSI machines to thrive in a variety of confined and challenging environments.

Effective management requires an integrated approach involving the Highway Agency, main contractors and sub-contractors. A healthy roadside environment reduces maintenance needs and costs, aids in preserving the roadside surface, provides safety for vehicles and travelers, maintains good public relations, and improves the overall driving experience for users.
