Today we have been carrying out some tree work in Norfolk…
The work is being carried out for Broadland District Council, The job was to crown lift and fell smaller trees approaching the carriageway on the B1149 Norwich to Holt road.
The day started around 9.00 with a risk assessment we do daily risk assessments on all jobs as things on site can change over night.
The next thing to do was the wildlife survey checking nesting birds etc, after this we could then set up the site using the two way traffic lights set out as in the (Safety at Street Works and Road Works code of practice book).
We weren’t aloud on the road during peak traffic times so we could only carry out the work between the hours of 9.30 am and 3.00pm and this had to be pre booked with five working days notice so the NCC Highways were aware of the works being done.
