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 Ground-Guards for help, as the issue was causing serious concern.
Ground-Guards 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.
