New Road Sweepers for Ringway Wiltshire

August saw the arrival of the first new sweepers into the Wiltshire contract. Two 15 tonne DAF sweepers in full Wiltshire contract livery joined the fleet and commenced operations.

The sweepers replaced long-term hires and ex Balfour Beatty Living Places (BBLP) fleet that had reached their expiry date. The new sweepers will be based in Melksham and Salisbury covering the west and south areas respectively.

 

Councillor Bridget Wayman, Cabinet Member for Highways and Waste, and Councillor Atiqul Hoque, Portfolio Holder for Highways, joined Divisional Manager, Mick Buckler, to review the machines at Ringway’s central depot in Melksham prior to going on the road to commence operations.
The sweepers will form part of the core operational plant for the next four and a half years as the Wiltshire team continues to deliver the highways maintenance contract.

 
Councillor Wayman said: “It is great to see Ringway continuing to invest in the contract and its commitment to working with the Council to improve the way operations are delivered for the residents of Wiltshire.”

 

Mick Buckler, Ringway Divisional Manager, said: “These larger machines will make operations more efficient, extending the time the operators can sweep before having to go to tip.”
