New staff car park and other site improvements
We created a staff car park on the untidy footprint of our old weighbridge. We also incorporated work to install a new underground storage tank for the site water supply as the old ones were corroding and we needed to work proactively in replacing them. M Stead resurfaced the new car park and approach road with recycled steel slag tarmac which we have used for over 40 years and find to be the best for durability and carrying weight. It was overkill on the car park really but it looks really nice. We then landscaped and reseeded the area which had become overgrown and very untidy with roots blocking drains-which we also replaced. The old steel barrier has been replaced with attractive low stone walls. The stone for these walls was reclaimed from the weighbridge base some of which was in the hard-core used in the base which was sourced from demolition that took place in the 1960’s so now on its third life that we know of-real recycling! We’ve had the area white lined and moved the exit point to a place where visibility is much better for accessing what is a fast albeit rural road.
