Luton Dunstable Busway – Vegetation Clearance
Practicality Brown carried out a vegetation clearance programme on the Luton Dunstable busway for main contractor, Bam Nuttall on behalf of Luton Borough Council. The site was a 12km section of disused railway comprising of both trees and scrub, running adjacent to live roads and railway from the centre of Dunstable to the opposite side of Luton. Traffic and Pedestrian Management was necessary in order to clear vegetation from the nine rail over bridges along the route, all of which intersect with busy live roads. The scheme provides a state of the art guided bus connection between Luton and Dunstable.
The contract had various constraints, including a condensed programme. As well as mechanised vegetation clearance, we provided ecology advice and sensitive management with Badgers, Bats, Slow Worms, Nesting Birds and important Flora.
