Highway services have been at the forefront of Dyer & Butler’s activity since our formation in 1979. We have built a reputation for working in close partnership with public organisations to deliver high quality, value-led solutions for road, bridge and highway works. Our experience and work on highways is managed by a team of dedicated engineering specialists benefiting from a wealth of experience in highways infrastructure.
Our roads and highways capabilities encompass standalone schemes as well as term projects with a wide range of services, including: carriageway construction, junction improvements, access roads, highway reconstruction and surfacing, park & ride facilities, cycle routes, footpaths, bridges, tunnels and embankments. These also include environmental improvements such as drainage, kerbing, barriers, paving, street furniture and signage.
Dyer & Butler maintains a permanent team of experienced and highly skilled contract managers and staff, which are managed by a board director, supported by highly focused project managers and internal SHEQ professionals along with procurement and logistic specialists. This delivery team undertakes and manages highways projects for both authorities and private sector clients, covering a broad range of activities required by customers in this sector.
We frequently work in environments in close proximity to moving traffic and practice rigid compliance to best practice in Health & Safety governance. This is of particular importance when providing emergency support to repair carriageways after accidents or road/slipway subsidence.

Our services include, but are not restricted to:
Dyer & Butler‘s core activity of highway maintenance and engineering has supported customers in this sector for over 35 years. This is a sector that has seen much change over the past 10 years, with recession-hit businesses and authorities working hard to ensure road services are kept to a safe and useable standard for all who use them. We have continued to invest in the plant, machinery and innovative processes that have positioned Dyer & Butler as one of the preferred providers of services for the maintenance, re-construction and construction of highways.
Of course, all customers require dependability; however, for those in the highways sector, almost all works are highly likely to have an effect at some level on the traveling public and the local community. From our traffic management processes through to community liaison, Dyer & Butlers work hard to ensure that safety and minimal disruption to people and businesses is always a key feature of any project.
A Dyer & Butler attribute that customers experience is our value-engineering approach towards projects. With our longstanding experience in engineering and materials procurement, we are often able to propose alternative solutions for those already specified for project fulfilment. The significant amounts of savings are illustrated in the Highways case studies within this website.
Materials and Waste Sustainability with Dyer & Butler
We are proud of our environmental standards and work hard for our customers to address the needs of lowering the carbon footprint of any construction work we undertake. In the highways sector, this means our procurement team will always select recyclable materials when available; on site, the muck, concrete and tarmac are all sent to recycling or crushed and re-used on site where possible.
