Preparing for London 2012

Working under its new highways maintenance contract with Surrey County Council, May Gurney is actively involved with the build up to the London 2012 Olympics.

Seven May Gurney crews and various team members helped organise the London-Surrey Olympic Cycle Classic, a test event for the 2012 Olympic Games cycling road races.

May Gurney’s role included traffic management for the race, making and erecting more than 1750 signs, resurfacing more than 10,000 square metres of carriageway and arranging signage for more than 300 road closures.

The Surrey Highways team was responsible for making sure the route was safe for competitors by repairing potholes, removing traffic islands and checking manholes. All temporary signs were provided by May Gurney’s in-house specialist sign business, Nordis Signs.

After the race, which won by Team GB star Mark Cavendish, the team was responsible for the lengthy task of removing the traffic management and signs, and replacing the traffic islands.

Jenny Isaac, assistant director from Surrey County Council, said: “The team worked professionally and delivered first class results under great pressure. The road surface looks fantastic for cycling and we are now working hard to prepare for the real thing.”

Rob Semanganda, May Gurney general manager, added: “We are very proud of what we achieved. We demonstrated true collaborative working through all our teams in Surrey and at Nordis Signs.”
