Can I use bogmats to create a haul road?
What is the best ground protection to create a haul road?
Farmland in East Sussex, England
A new crematorium being built in Wealdon required access for heavy vehicles across a working farmyard.
Concerns were raised about the weight of the muck-away lorries wrecking the concrete yard, as well as mud spillage on the main road causing health and safety concerns.
The company contacted GroundGuards for help, as the issue was causing serious concern.
GroundGuards were on site next day and within 48 hours had designed a solution with MaxiTrack.
Within a few days the client signed off the design and, despite being 250 miles away, our installation team drove through the night to be on-site the next day at 7am to install the trackway.
The early start and rapid deployment associated with MaxiTrack was critical as there was a minimal amount of stoppage time allowed.
With trucks backing up – the pressure was on. But our team delivered the solution quickly and with no delays!
Using MaxiTrack – a portable, easy-to-lay, high traction mat guaranteed unbreakable by vehicles up to 130 tonnes – the haul road protected the concrete yard underneath from the heavy-duty lorries, significantly reducing the spillage of mud onto the main road.
A neat, tidy, functional roadway.
The client was delighted with our speed of response, the advice and consultation we gave, and the quality of the final solution.
