Roads & rail

The southeast is a growth area with road and rail projects regularly interfacing with adjoining landowners.  Our expert professionals are required to submit appropriate representations, compile and negotiate claims for compensation and seek out opportunities to add value by offering temporary accommodation and minerals contract services or similar.

We have acted for landowners on numerous road widening schemes (A12, A130, M25).  Despite having statutory powers to compulsory purchase land our experts have successfully negotiated with construction companies to buy agricultural land from landowners for in excess of normal agricultural values.

We have also negotiated additional monies for items such as:

  • compounds
  • balancing ponds
  • installation of services
