Marlborough has committed to invest in a new fleet for the company as it continues to expand and improve efficiencies.
The roll out of the new 135 strong fleet consists of 29 HGV MAN lorries and 106 Peugeot vans and has already begun and is expected to be complete by September 2020. Many of the older vehicles will be replaced, helping to save around £2 million over the next 5 years.
The investment will see the civil engineering and infrastructure services company improve the vehicles throughout its surfacing, highway maintenance, road marking, traffic management, street lighting and infrastructure divisions. The vehicle types will include sweepers, lining lorries, tipper grabs, tar sprayers, lighting lorries and many more.
The vehicles will all be equipped with the latest specifications including cameras and trackers. They will also have the latest engine technology to comply with Euro 6 standards to help us improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions which is important to Marlborough, clients and the general public.
The ULEZ (Ultra Low Emissions Zone) is set to expand to cover all areas inside the North and South Circular from the end of October 2021. As a lot of Marlborough’s Contracts are within this area, it is an important and necessary standard to comply with.
Matthew Revell, Managing Director Marlborough Highways said “We are committed to investing in Marlborough to improve efficiency and the service we provide to all our clients. The investment will help to support our continued growth. I am looking forward to seeing the new fleet on the roads over the next six months or so.”
