“The variety and complexity of the work carried out is seldom seen in the industry. UDP have
worked above Rivers, Canals and Railways all of which pose unique challenges and a special set of
skills to deliver. UDP have proven crucial, not only to deliver the work but also to lead with pre-
construction, planning and liaising with local councils. UDP have made the North West & West
Midlands infrastructure a lot safer place, by removing numerous redundant assets which all posed a
risk to members of the public. All schemes have been completed without incident or overrun, this is
down to their proactive and methodical attitude towards safety along with robust planning.”
