Nelson road maintenance, asphalt supply, laying & traffic management
Fulton Hogan creates, connects and cares for communities; building the roads, ports, airports, infrastructure and property which brings people together. We build communities literally from the ground up, starting with our own network of quarries, complemented by our asphalt, emulsion and pre-cast plants.
Keeping Nelson busy through effective road maintenance strategies
The sunniest region of New Zealand is Nelson, on the northern tip of the country’s South Island. As well as attracting tourists, the climate promotes a large volume of agricultural and horticultural output, with vines, orchards and dairy at the forefront. The region requires constant maintenance of its road network to keep visitors and produce moving freely and safely, and Fulton Hogan’s nationwide expertise in providing road maintenance operations can meet this demand. Rehabilitation of damaged and denuded road surfaces, updating of signage and rehabilitation of bridges are all covered by our experienced road maintenance crews.
Asphalt supply and laying
The communities of Nelson are very environmentally conscious – the region’s fishermen recently developed a breakthrough in ethical seafood harvesting that allows collateral species picked up by trawlers to be released unharmed back into the ocean. All commercial activity in this region is therefore expected to be carried out with ‘green’ considerations in mind, and Fulton Hogan focus on this area. Our asphalt supply and laying operations provide product manufactured using low temperature / low emission technologies. Performance is not compromised, with the asphalt and bitumen supplied developed to exacting customer requirements, and our asphalt laying teams have access to mobile mix plant enabling them to operate across the region including in remote and challenging terrain.
Superior traffic management
Being the South Island’s gateway to the inter-island ferry, and with numerous tourist destinations of its own, traffic volumes in Nelson are high relative to its population. In order to keep local communities safe and able to function efficiently traffic management measures are often called upon. Fulton Hogan offer a range of services facilitate traffic flow around busy areas, construction sites and any unforeseen circumstances altering standard road conditions. Our management of these situations is undertaken in conjunction with local authorities and businesses.
