Manchester Road Surfacing

Providing high quality Manchester road surfacing for over 20 years

Dowhigh Civil Engineering are a professional civil engineering and road surfacing company based in Bootle, Liverpool. We have been providing road surfacing expertise to the Manchester area for over 20 years and have worked with Manchester City Council to provide surfacing skills across the city.

Contracted to provide essential road surfacing maintenance, we offer not only emergency road maintenance but also planned and preventative work to ensure that the road network is maintained to a high standard.

Keeping you moving throughout Manchester

We understand that a properly maintained road network is essential. It ensures that people can get to work on time, their children to school and reduces the stress and worry of time spent in the car.

That's why Dowhigh are trusted by Manchester City Council with contracted work throughout the area to keep the road network in good order.

Working with the council, we are tasked with assisting with road surfacing and maintenance work.

Our team of experienced professionals are on-hand in not only a maintenance capacity - repairing potholes and damaged road surfacing, but also through preventative work to resurface damaged roads which may become more damaged (leading to delays and closures) in the future.

We also provide surfacing on new roads in the area.

Much more than just surfacing

We don't just provide road surfacing expertise. As a professional Manchester civil engineering company, we can also assist with a wide range of road, drainage and excavation skills. These include:

  • Muck shifting
  • Road inspection (where roads are depressed or subsided)
  • Large and small scale drainage - installations, repairs and maintenance
  • Sewerage work - installation, repairs and maintenance
  • New road building
  • Ground excavations and groundworks
  • Traffic calming

Dowfoam - utilising recycled aggregates for road & pathway construction

Dowfoam is Dowhigh's own recycled bespoke version of a stabilised, foamed bitumen material. We reuse the majority of the road surface we replace, reducing waste and therefore reducing our impact on the environment.
