About Us

We at Jakto Transport and Excavations, from Barnsley, South Yorkshire are No 1 for Bulk Earthworks, Site Clearance, Demolition, Remediation, Civil Engineering and Road Haulage projects. We have vast knowledge and over 40 years of experience in the construction industry, with 90% of our growth being as a result of client recommendations.

We consider ourselves honest, trust worthy and completely committed to customer satisfaction. We are based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire but many of our projects have taken us across the country. We employ over 100 personnel, who are taking care of your highways project, from "Concept to Completion" covering road and dual carriageway construction, road surfacing/re-surfacing, and road maintenance. We plan and carry out all the major constituents of highways schemes in-house, so you can be assured your project will be properly managed, completed on-time and within budget.

Jakto regularly win contracts from local authority and national highways bodies, including some on a quality selection basis, making us one of the largest road construction contractors/ specialists in the North and the Northwest of England. As clients have moved away from traditional tendering techniques, we now routinely take part in the latest procurement methods, including partnering.

From challenging emergency rock cutting remedial works – finished ahead of schedule – to the pre-programmed resurfacing of major highways, we are experienced in planning complex traffic management arrangements, safely ensuring minimal disruption to the travelling public.

We are experienced in operating under the NEC form of contract and regularly deliver projects comfortably within target cost.
