How much does it cost to replace damaged kerbs?
28 Oct 2019
This is a question we regularly ask developers, and are often surprised at the uncertainty of the answer.
Some think purely in terms of the cost of the new kerb itself. Others have a full grasp of the many other hidden costs that are involved in replacing damaged kerbs. This obviously includes the extra labour to remove and replace the kerbs, but (depending on your Highways Inspector!) may also involve breaking out and replacing the concrete bed, then re-tarmacing. On top of which there is the cost of machinery and fuel, plus haulage and tipping off site.
Developers who take all this into consideration have been quoting us figures of anything from £24 to £60 per kerb replacement.
Please help us with this research. We are collecting figures from across the industry which will be condensed into a single report. All figures will be listed anonymously, but will enable the whole industry to double check their costings on this.
