Leeds-based drainage and groundworks company Jet Aire Services has secured a 12-month contract to provide highways maintenance services on behalf of Rochdale Borough Council.


Work began this month to provide ongoing support for main contractor Balfour Beatty to manage the council’s highway infrastructure assets, which include over 570km of road. Jet Aire’s programme includes CCTV surveys, jet vacuuming, pipe lining repairs and civil engineering works throughout the Metropolitan Borough of Rochdale.


Jet Aire services director Keith Ferris said: “It is the latest in a series of six-figure contracts which Jet Aire Services has won in the past 18 months. Securing this business is a reflection of our investment in a high level of training, resources and quality management which has been ongoing for the past two years and recently continued with another five recycler units added to our fleet.”


Last year Jet Aire Services launched a civil engineering and groundworks division to complement its established professional drainage services.


This new capability has enabled it to develop new business supplying both highways and sewer adoption for various clients in the public and private sectors and Ferris said it was “instrumental in our successful tender for the full programme of works from Rochdale Borough Council”.


With a Middlesbrough office in addition to its Aberford HQ, Jet Aire Services has been established for over 30 years.


The company’s services also include tankering and waste disposal, UV lining, infiltration sealing, robotic cutting, root cutting, epoxy spray and Ultracoating. Jet Aire Services has ISO9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS 18001 management certification.
