Rochdale Borough Council increase inhouse self-delivery capabilities with Multihog purchase

As Rochdale Borough Council gears up to take their highway maintenance services back in house to self-deliver, the council has identified the Multihog as the most efficient solution for undertaking pothole and patch repairs as well as footway maintenance.

The council has also opted for a high-capacity brine sprayer which is able to carry out effective winter treatment in confined areas without the need to repetitively refill the tank due to the unit’s ultra-efficient CAN-bus precise spraying system.

Michael Aiken, Team Leader Asset Management & Highway Maintenance at Rochdale Borough Council is certain the Multihog will make a great addition to their highways fleet:

“Making the move to bring highway maintenance services back inhouse is an exciting transition for the council and opting for the Multihog will allow us to carry out permanent repairs, eliminating costly repeat visits.  We’re looking forward to seeing the positive results achieved for both the council and our road users across the borough.”

Rochdale Borough Council are confident in making the move for the Multihog after speaking with nearby experienced Multihog customers such as Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council who operate a fleet of 3 Multihog’s for winter maintenance and different highway maintenance duties. Multevo are also looking to support the council as a highway maintenance and civil engineering supply chain partner moving forward to supplement their inhouse highways responsibilities.

On welcoming new customers, Josh Sweeney, Director of Marketing and Growth at Multevo explains

“The Multihog is the UK market leader for winter maintenance applications in the Airport industry and we already work with around 40% of local authority highway maintenance departments. Increasingly, we are finding that more and more councils are seeing the benefits of self-delivering duties with fewer vehicles and the Multihog is proven to perform in these areas. We’re delighted that this is reflected in new customers choosing the Multihog as a long-term solution.”
