A Solution Found in Temporary Ground Protection
The final stages of a bridge construction project had to come to a halt after poor ground conditions meant that the machinery could not access the difficult site location. The job which involved placement of fill under a newly constructed bridge as support, meant the partial closure of a road and the on-site team working to a tight deadline to have the road re-opened.
The limited height under the bridge meant that special equipment in the form of a mini loader was needed to complete the works. The site was located at the bottom of a steep hill which was saturated due to recent rains, making the access muddy and slippery. Due to the mini loader’s small tracks it could not manoeuvre down the hill safely. With the road partially closed, a solution was needed quickly. The on-site team already had knowledge of the TuffTrak® product range, they were confident they could find an immediate solution.
