Roadworks & S278 Works Contractors

ALERON is an experienced and accredited Roadworks & S278 Works Contractor


We work with developers, main contractors and local authorities, assisting with the development and delivery of adoptable road and highways infrastructure.

A Section 278 agreement (or S278) is a section of the Highways Act 1980 that allows developers to enter into a legal agreement with a Local Authority (the Highway Authority) to make permanent alterations or improvements to a public highway, as part of a new scheme development and construction process.

 ALERON employ teams of trained, experienced and qualified projects managers, works supervisors and site operatives carrying the highest level of NRSWA (New Roads and Street Works Act), CPCS, NPORS, SMSTS, SSSTS and CSCS qualifications.
