Our contractor, Volker Highways provide a quotation and construction service for the purpose of dropping kerbs outside properties to make driveways.
Applications for dropped kerbs must be submitted online.
Our appointed contractor will carry out the construction of the crossover. No works shall be carried out within the confines of the highway by the applicant or any agent acting for the applicant.
What work is involved for the cost?
The kerbs will be replaced with three low kerb units and a tapered kerb at each side, unless agreed otherwise with the householder. All new applications will be constructed in tarmac for the full width of the footpath. An extension may be constructed to match the existing crossover, or in tarmac.
