IT'S green for "go" as a Norfolk-based highways support services firm moves into the fast lane and aims for £5m in sales this year.

Trek Highway Support Services has its headquarters in Thetford and depots across the South East including a new one in Dereham and employs a total of 120 people.

It does a "complete package" of jobs on road building projects including designing and operating traffic flow plans, sweeping and gully emptying, verge management and replacing lines.

Owner and chief executive Stewart Halsey has been at the helm for four years and Trek has "significantly increased sales" in that period.

Within the last two weeks, Trek has secured a £400,000 contract with Amey Lafarge and also two new traffic management contracts for Virgin Media cable laying on the A12 and Northampton.

The company will be bidding for the contract for support services for dualling of the final section of the A11 at Elveden and is also hoping to cash in on the government's plans to invest in road building as part of efforts to fight back against the recession.

Trek was also involved with the A11/A47 Thickthorn roundabout scheme and is also working on the A140 Pulham Market roundabout.

Nigel Broom, eastern business development manager, said: "We started as a small stop/go business and it has taken off. We are expanding and while there is a recession and times are

hard, the potential is there and we are positive for this year."

Laurence Clark, eastern regional manager, said training was a very important part of the business and everyone shared "the passion for the job."

One eye-catching part of Trek's business is their fleet of colourful Smart convoy cars.
