HGV Cycle Safety

JPM Contractors Ltd take road safety very seriously and we are committed to the safety of vulnerable road user such as cyclists.

With the growing number of cyclists using the roads of London, there is a growing challenge to ensure their safety in conjunction with other road users. In recent years there have been a number of high profile incidents involving both cyclists and HGVs that have resulted in a cyclist fatality.

However, in recent years there has been a growing availability of technology that can be deployed by HGV operators to help their fleets and drivers to detect cyclists whilst on the road and therefore better prevent the likelihood of any cycling related incidents. This technology can also help other vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians, who may be unsighted from the driver’s cab.

Secondary benefits of cycle safety technology include, less damage to vehicles, less time utilised dealing with the aftermath of an incident, lower insurance premiums and enhanced driver confidence.

Road Sweeper Hire London

JPM Contractors Ltd provide operated road sweeper hire nationwide, although we do have a very heavy presence in and around London which is where we specialise.

Road Sweeper Hire London

Our fleet of Johnston VT650 and 600 truck mounted road sweepers operate within the Low Emission Zone in the London area and are adequately equipped to deal with the challenges of inner city roads, building sites, airports, car parks and alike. Our operators have been supplying road sweeper hire in London for many years and are able to keep your job running on time with their knowledge of the London roads.


Tarmac and Road Surfacing

We have vast experience working with the majority of the major Tarmac and Surfacing crews in and around the London area which brings some unique challenges to ensure the operations are kept moving smoothly. All of our operators have knowledge of the London roads enabling a prompt arrival at site. This knowledge is coupled with a deep understanding of what is required by Tarmac crews in terms of being ready to move when the conditions are right and getting the job done first time around. This is vital when dealing with busy London Roads.

Building Sites

Our Road Sweeper Hire London operating crews are acutely aware of the pressures on confined building sites in the Greater London area and our expertise comes in to play when the need to keep the surround streets and roads clear from the intrusion of the vehicle and swept clean and thoroughly reducing the risks of accidents from roads that are heavily soiled by traffic coming and going from the building site.

On Time

Due to our central location and the large fleet of road sweepers we are able to offer our customers and contractors an arrival time and short visits to their sites from as little as 1 hour on site. This can be of great benefit to site managers needing to prioritise the movement of vehicles around the site. We are also able to offer full day’s of coverage on site from the early hours of the morning to the late evenings.


Our rates for operated road sweeper hire in and around the greater London area are among the most competitive in the industry and in some cases of comparison up to 50% better than the the competition.

So, if you are looking for a solution to the need to have your roads and streets around any of your construction projects in London you need look no further than JPM Contractors Ltd.

Emergency Response Vehicle

We have recently changed the look and feel of our Emergency Response Vehicles in an effort to freshen up the image and create cross brand awareness.

The identification of our support vehicles is important for gaining access to sensitive construction site areas and allowing the speedy response that we guarantee our customers. Another benefit of the high impact graphics is to allow for hazard awareness on Motorways and when working with tarmac crews on very busy, live roads. On the rare occasions that our support vehicles are called out to remedy any issues that the fleet of operated road sweepers may encounter, it’s important that our support vehicles are both easily identified and highly visible to allow the smooth operation of the current project to continue with little or no interruption.

This is a further commitment toward our 100% safety record over the last ten years of which we are rightly very proud.

Underground Car Park Cleaning

The Correct Impression

Does your Car Park give the right impression?

The first impression any visitor to your business will have could be that of the car park.

Is your car park clean? How often do you have it swept clean?

It would be a fairly labour intensive task to use a man and broom to clean all of the road surfaces, walls and doors of an entire underground car park. The Scarab Minor is the perfect machine for the cleaning and sweeping of these types of environment. Removing moss and weed build up, removing traffic film from the roads and cleaning all of the surrounding walls and doors.

With its low height clearance of just 2.32 Mtrs the Scarab Minor is perfectly suited to cleaning underground car parks.

Narrow Barriers

Cleaning underground car parks

Easily fits between pedestrian safety barriers.

With an overall width of just 1.65 Mtrs the Scarab Minor is also well equipped to move between pedestrian safety barriers, allowing even more effective cleaning of high foot traffic areas.

The machine pictured here is in the underground car park of a huge Tesco development in North London.

The Scarab Minor also comes equipped with a high pressure jetting lance allowing the cleaning of walls and doors as can be seen in the image above.

The Scarab Minor Road Sweeper can also be used to clean the car parks of schools, pubs, colleges and just about any car parking environment.

JPM Contractors Ltd

If you are responsible for keeping the grounds of your business looking clean and presentable, then why not give us a call to see how much money you could be saving by having the Scarab Minor come to your business to sweep it clean?

Street Sweeper Accident

Street Sweeper Accident

Road Sweeper runs over drunken pedestrian

During the early hours of Friday morning on 07/09/2012, a Nashville Public Works Street Sweeper knocked down a drunken pedestrian.


It was suggested that the late night raver was seen taunting the road sweeper which was carrying out road sweeping duties cleaning the roads of the main intersection between 2nd Avenue and Broadway before being sucked under the machine.

Stable Condition

The pedestrian was transported to hospital by ambulance and was said to be in a critical but stable condition.


The operator of the road sweeper will not be charged following the incident, however the are possibly charges against the drunken pedestrian.

The Scarab Minor Road Sweeper


The Scarab Minor Road Sweeper can be seen here giving a pre-clean of the granite paved area prior to it being cleaned with a specially formulated stone cleaner. The Scarab Minor is removing any litter and debris from the pavement.

The Scarab Minor is ideally suited to this type of environment where a full size road sweeper can’t be deployed due to weight restrictions.


Although the Scarab Minor is a smaller road sweeper, it still has all of the power needed to clean full size roads and small paved areas as can be seen here. We have the Scarab Minor available as and Operated Machine or as a Self Drive Scarab.

The Scarab Minor has a Gulley Brush, a Belly Brush and two front brushes for complete coverage, great for Car Parks!

Scarab Minor Road Sweeper in Central London

Our fleet of Scarab Minor Road Sweepers are proving very popular in and around the central London area.
These smaller road sweepers are extremely well suited to the urban environment. The compact size allows them to take up less space in the already congested and heavily restricted building sites of boroughs such as Chelsea, Fulham, Westminster and The City of London.
Fully equipped with a Wonder Suction Hose, High Pressure Jetting Lance and powerful sweeping brushes and a maximum laden weight of just 3.5 tonnes makes these compact road sweepers the perfect plant hire for the restricted building sites of a major city like London.
The Scarab Minor has two high speed brushes at the front of the machine, gulley brushes on either side and a wide sweep brush under the centre of the sweeper which give the Scarab Minor a combined sweeping width of  2.17mtrs. The high pressure water system allows effective removal of all types of debris from pavements and roads.
This effective sweeper has been at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this week helping to keep the site clean. The size of the sweeper along with it’s low operating noise makes it perfect where there are pedestrians.
The machine can be hired from as little as £30 per hour with fully trained operator and is available all through  the week on a 24hr basis.
