Lanes Goes Down The Drain

The Lanes Group has won major new contracts to provide specialist cleaning services for Thames Water. The work includes sewage treatment plant cleaning, sewage pumping station cleaning, wet well emptying, and tankering.

Lanes has joined other contractors on a framework pool to supply the services for three years, with options to extend delivery for up to eight years.

Thames Water tendered services in four lots within the framework. Lanes Group's bids were successful with all of them.

Through its Lanes Utilities Division, based in on the Slough Trading Estate, in Slough, Berkshire, Lanes Group is already Thames Water's sole wastewater network services maintenance partner.

Lanes Utilities operates more than 270 specialist vehicles from six utility service hubs, and employs 1,000 staff on behalf of Thames Water.

Director Andy Brierley said: "We already have highly skilled and dedicated teams in place, combined with the most advanced specialist vehicles, to carry out the work."

Lanes Group also delivers wastewater network maintenance services for other water companies, including Severn Trent, Scottish Water, and Anglian Water.
