DBi Services’ team of operatives, headed up by Contract Supervisor Scott Harris, commenced works on 10 October 2013 to deliver the 24,000m2 of thermoplastic road markings on the final section of the motorway project.
Tony Ridsdell, Machine Operator for DBi, gave the visiting Prime Minister a hands-on demonstration on board one of our Multi Mark Machines.
The visit from the Prime Minster received press coverage from national publications in Kosovo including The Telegraph, Express and Kohanet.
From the official Telegraph Press Release:
“What we saw today is really a miracle for the new Kosovo. This is the project of the European Kosovo and the lines we marked today in the motorway are the lines that separate the underdevelopment area with the modernization area, with that of the European Kosovo we are building. Therefore, I congratulate all citizens of the Republic of Kosovo for this great project, the most modern in the region, a project that gives meaning to our nation-building, gives meaning to the modernization, and gives meaning to our vision for a European Kosovo. Once again, I congratulate all citizens of the Republic of Kosovo, all the people of this great project in the Republic of Kosovo,” said Thaçi.
This visit marks the final leg of DBi’s role on this project and its teams are due to complete works as scheduled on 10 November 2013 before returning back to the UK.
“The praise received from the Government official is testament to the hard work and professionalism shown by our team on this and previous sections of the project, and concludes another successful overseas operation for DBi UK,” stated John LeFante, DBi Services Managing Director of Operations, Europe.
