Ringway Milton Keynes praised for flood response

Ringway Milton Keynes has been praised by the city’s council for its swift and effective response to flooding that affected more than 400 houses.

Ringway teams worked around the clock delivering 5,800 sandbags to vulnerable homes, with an additional 36 tonnes of sand and 2,000 bags delivered to local volunteers.

 

Response crews were in operation through the night after the deluge more than a week ago to help pump water from 12 flooded subways, with other gangs working additional hours on increased gully emptying and drainage clearance, as well as to carry out previously planned maintenance across the rest of the city’s network.

 

The swift response to the floods was met with praise from Milton Keynes Council, including the authority’s chief executive and senior staff within the authority’s highways department.

 

Andy Dickinson, Highways Client Service Manager for Milton Keynes Council, said: “I would just like to echo and say a personal thank you to all Ringway staff for all the support from the Sunday night right through the week including overnight working in very difficult conditions, they have all been truly exceptional and MK could not have responded as it did without all this support.

 

“It has been “when do you want it” not “I’m not sure if we can” and I can state without any question that the Ringway staff in MK are a credit to the company.”

 

John Nicholson, Regional Director for Ringway East Midlands, said: “We pride ourselves on providing excellent services to our clients and it is often in the most challenging circumstances that we are able to demonstrate our commitment and capability.”
