Royal approval for wedding celebrations
Live, Europe's pioneering experts in temporary access solutions, deployed over 19,000m of barriers and fencing during last weekend’s Royal Wedding celebrations.
Tasked with strengthening safety and security during the event, Live, a specialist division of A-Plant, provided over 8000 GT Lightweight Barriers and 525m of Heras fencing across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead.
The company’s crowd control system was installed through Windsor town and The Long Walk, leading to Windsor Castle, protecting the wedding party and ensuring the procession route remained unobstructed.
To keep members of the public safe from overcrowding, pedestrian barriers were also deployed to Windsor and Eton’s train stations to create queuing systems for people arriving into and exiting the town.
Prior to the event, Live installed its Euromat temporary roadway system on the grass of the Long Walk, to protect it from work being carried out by other contractors.
Towerlights, toilets, accommodation cabins and water bowsers were also provided from A-Plant’s portfolio of specialist divisions.
Jade Jones, Live Barriers’ Account Manager for the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, said the company was thrilled to be involved in such a momentous occasion:
“Being asked to provide a safety solution for such a momentous historic event was a huge honour and we were thrilled to work on such a high profile project.
“In the lead up to the event our experienced barrier team worked closely with the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to ensure the big day ran smoothly and any last minute changes and requests were fully accommodated.”
As one of the leading suppliers to Europe's events industry, Live offer an extensive portfolio of fencing and crowd barriers, installed in their thousands at events across the UK.
Live has worked closely with Thames Valley Police and the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead for many Royal events and state visits.
The company’s GT Lightweight Barrier is a steel temporary barrier system, designed for low to medium crowd control. The system has previously been deployed on a number of high profile projects including: the Magna Carta 800 celebrations, the London Marathon, the Commonwealth Games and the Rugby World Cup.
