The M8 M73 M74 Motorway Improvements Advance Works Contract - Consolidation of Mineworkings carried out for Transport Scotland at the A8/A725 Shawhead junction, near Coatbridge was completed on programme at the end of July. The contract was carried out to treat shallow mineworkings in advance of high pressure gas main diversions and construction of a new TRS station by Scottish Gas Networks. 10 of our geotechnical drilling rigs completed the stabilisation work, much of which was carried out as angled drilling under the existing carriageways and slip roads.2013 is a landmark year for Forkers as we celebrate 40 successful years in business delivering high quality civil and ground engineering projects. Founded in September 1972 by founder and Chairman Paddy Forker, the company has gone from strength to strength while continuing to recognise his key founding principles of quality, safety, best value and customer service.
