In the early hours of April 28th 2014, East Midlands Airport in Leicestershire was forced to close after the landing gear of a Boeing 737-400 cargo plane from Paris failed whilst moving on the runway. Not only did the plane become stranded just off the runway but also the failure of the landing equipment caused the runway surface itself to become damaged and in need of immediate repair before the airport could reopen.
With the cancellation of over 45 flights affecting an estimated 9000 passengers, Jordan’s were contacted to see if we could assist in getting the airport back up and running. Offering a complete in house planing and surfacing solution as well an excellent working relationship with our clients, Jordan’s were able to reschedule some of our work commitments and head out to the airport to carry out the essential repairs.
After assessing the damage, Jordan’s planed off the damaged runway surface where required into one of our own tipper lorries before laying Midland Quarry Products runway spec SMA surface course through one of our own Mini Pavers to repave the area and then roll and compact accordingly with our own twin drum and dead weight rollers.
After successfully repairing the runway, the airport was able to reopen later that day.
Working alongside Ealing Borough Council, Siemens and Transport for London, Jordans successfully completed the new traffic signal scheme in February on behalf of Asda Park Royal.
Working over a 5 week period, Jordans were tasked with the installation of all required ducting for the installation of the new traffic signals as well as the improvements to the existing footway and installation of new controlled pedestrian crossing points.
Large areas of the approach roads were also planed out and resurfaced before the application of new road markings and anti-skid surface treatment.
With our commitment to a greener sustainable future with our Jordan Re-cycler Foam material, we are pleased to announce the arrival of our 2nd Mobile re-cyling plant, the Wirtgen KMA 200.
To compliment our commitment to aggregate recycling, we have also purchased our own screening plant to compliment our 2 mobile recycling plants. This plant enables us to screen all types of aggregate to various sizes, which can then be directly utilized in our Re-Cycler Foam material.
Jordans are pleased to announce the latest addition to our road paving fleet with the addition of our brand new Vogele Super 1803-3 paver. Benefiting from some of the most up to date technology, the paver boasts supreme performance on anything from narrow paved areas up to motorways.
Starting in December last year, Jordan set up our mobile recycling plant into Groby quarry in Leicestershire. The aim was to primarily deal with Leicestershire Highways growing tar problems in the existing road networks. Using our recycling plant, Leicestershire county council can now bring in the tar bound material to be converted into our re-cycler foam material as a direct alternative to conventional base course asphalt in their works. This not only allows the council to avoid costly disposal fees but also offers a greener alternative to conventional road and footway construction.
