Tour de France/Yorkshire

It’s been a fantastic weekend in Yorkshire with the Tour de France taking to the Yorkshire Dales for the Grand Départ.  Hundreds of thousands of people lined the roads to support and encourage the cyclists on there way.

For DTMS Group it meant successfully carrying out various contract works in preparation for the tour which obviously came with very tight deadlines.  These included:

  • Early completion of our annual weed control on the route and surrounding areas
  • Cleaning of road signs
  • Strimming of verges to allow spectators to view
  • Cleaning and Painting of black and white block paved chevrons on roundabouts

We also helped with the closure of Ripon Market Place for the weekend so that supporters could continue to celebrate and watch the race safely, over Yorkshire stages 1 and 2, from the Ripon hub.
