Road and Line Marking

Road and line marking from C&R

Experienced road marking contractors

Road markings are there to help drivers and pedestrians get around safely. From traditional white lining to more complex chevrons, speed roundels, and cycleways, they’re all needed to keep traffic flowing.

Our experienced team can assess what type of paint is needed for different jobs and applications. Thermoplastic line markings are typically used for road markings because they are hardwearing, reflective, and anti-slip. 

From small private car parks to supermarkets, petrol filling stations, and busy motorways, we work to a consistently high standard, whatever the size of the job. We pride ourselves on completing work on time, keeping disruption to a minimum on the UK’s busy highways.

Thermoplastic line marking

Thermoplastic lining has all the right qualities for road markings. It’s anti-skid, reflective and durable enough to withstand extreme weather conditions and heavy traffic every day.

For the paint to adhere to the road correctly, you must prepare the surface first. We offer a one-stop service from cleaning and surface preparation to road marking and white lining at C&R.  

Our team of skilled technicians has years of experience applying thermoplastic line markings to a consistently high standard. So you can rest assured that your road markings will look good and meet the legal requirements.

Depots, factories, car parks, and highways all have white lines to help people get around safely. They’re the silent markers we use to keep road users and pedestrians on the right track.

Chaos would soon follow without these cues to help us navigate busy spaces.
