    Drainage contractors and more.

    The Lanes Group is more than a wastewater solutions provider. We still stand proudly at the centre of the UK drainage industry, which continues to be the very heart of our business. But, we have also explored, expanded and extended this core activity into specialist sectors, taking our successes and achievements in one field and applying them to others. We have diversified where that has been needed. And we have accommodated the changing demands of our clients. In every case, we believe we have made a real difference.

    Serious about service.

    Our Rail Division, for example, is a respected, multi-disciplinary contractor providing asset management services which go way beyond drains, taking in reactive and planned station maintenance and rail projects. Lanes Utilities manages wastewater network framework contracts, whilst we cover the direct domestic drainage market via our nationwide network of Lanes for Drains’ depots. And, when it comes to sewer rehabilitation, our award-winning Reline Division has a reputation that ensures it is always in demand. For drainage services, Lanes really does go from A to Z.

    The Lanes Group combines the very best of practical skills with a truly pioneering spirit. The recent acquisition of certain assets of UKDN Waterflow Limited forming UKDN Waterflow (LG) Ltd and AQS Environmental Services in Ireland increases the capacity to deliver waste water, clean water and waste management services within the Lanes Group plc. Each company compliments one another.
