M25/M11 Closure and clean-up
Hydro Cleansing were called to a major incident at the M11 junction of the M25 at 12pm on 5/11/2015 by Connect plus the management company for the section of the motorway.
Hydro Cleansing vehicles including Mega Heat, a specialist high pressure jetting unit which utilises heated water to clean the toughest materials away, were on their way to the scene within an hour.
Our teams have been cleaning and removing approximately 24 tonnes of Lard from the carriageway. The lard is spread over a large area and has created a serious hazard by reducing the levels of tyre grip on the road surface. This has resulted in a driving surface akin to an ice skating rink.
Hydro Cleansing have had a team of 8 men working through the night in severe weather conditions. Hydro Cleansing have provided Welfare units and relief vehicles and continue to support the clean-up effort and those affected by it.
Hydro Cleansing is very proud of the efforts of our team who have performed beyond any level of expectation. They will not leave the site till the road surface condition is suitable and safe for motorists to use again.
