Our road marking removal service is extensive and is requested for a variety of reasons. One such circumstance came about when a North West-based road marking contactor got in touch with us to clean away a number of ‘SCHOOL KEEP CLEAR’ makings outside of a school, the reason being that these markings were outdated and needing to be replaced with new ones.
As with all of our jobs, preparing the area and ensuring the safety of others is an absolute priority. Before work started, we made sure that the area was secure by marking it off with cones and putting up warning signs. It’s important to have these precautions in place for the safety of passers-by, particularly for locations such as a school which can get busy and involves children.
To carry out the line removal, we used our ultra high-pressure water jetting unit to clear away the markings on the road. Our unit was able to safely and efficiently remove the markings and finally, a road sweeper was brought in to get rid of any residual debris, leaving the whole area clear and ready for the brand new markings.
Intricacy is needed for such a job, making our use of small and nifty water jetting equipment ideal. Should larger and more traditional equipment be used, the whole road would need to be closed and the line removal would be disruptive. Our client was therefore extremely pleased with our process.
We have carried out many line removals over the years, with our services being required for a number of reasons. In some cases, road markings have needed to be removed due to an error in layout or spelling (see image below). Alternatively, road layouts sometimes need changing, in which case it is necessary to remove the current road markings to make way for new ones.
