The Bar Hill diversion opened on Sunday as planned. Just a quick note to thank ARBUS for going over and beyond to deliver the VRS. I have had nothing but good reports about the operatives that worked all weekend on this. Please extend our thanks to them.


A14 Integrated Delivery Team

Everything was great as always. A big thanks for all your help and efforts to get this project completed.


Kemal Bakici - Balfour Beatty

A huge round of applause to all of you for the success we all share on completion of the M1 Junction 19 Improvement scheme. It has been a fantastic project – thank you for your support and enthusiasm. We hope you are as proud of, and impressed by this terrific achievement as we are. Please share this more widely among your teams with our best wishes.


Operations Director - Skanska

I thought I’d like to put out a BIG WELL DONE to all that have made a fantastic effort over the past few weeks to achieve where we are today on the A1 switch. Fantastic effort and collaboration from all those involved in making the switch go very smoothly and safely. It’s a pleasure to work with direct labour and sub-contractors who really care about safety and quality, and prove we can work in tight potentially dangerous areas by cordoning off their work sites to ensure plant pedestrian interface is maintained at all times and still get the job done on time. You are all a credit to your companies.


Senior General Foreman - A14 Integrated Delivery Team

Congratulations to everybody for the great achievement in opening the Swavesey westbound to traffic. This is even more special because we’ve done it on time hitting another one of our critical milestones. Thank you all.


Roadworks Manager (S4) - A14 Integrated Delivery Team

Hill & Smith are proud to have worked alongside Arbus to deliver the A14 flagship scheme; supplying all the Vehicle Restraint Systems for this project was a great achievement! Hill & Smith provided VRS technical support to the clients from the beginning which supported Arbus and wider A14 team in ensuring the project was successfully completed.


VRS Manufacturer, Hill & Smith

This scheme had challenged conventional approaches to barrier restraints. Working in collaboration with Arbus and Highways England, the team developed a really innovative approach that is already creating a safer environment for all. Arbus were innovative in their approach to designing this barrier solution and it was exciting to be involved following a long term relationships with the teams,
