Our team were contacted by Hessle Forklift Trucks based in Castleford to assess a vital section of their yard that had broken down over time and developed large potholes, due to failed tarmac that couldn’t manage the traffic of heavy forklifts and low loaders.
Once we evaluated the yard, we scheduled our Ashcourt planer to take out all the existing and ruined tarmac to a depth of 150mm, we then rolled and re-compacted the formation layer ready for the RCC to be laid. Before we moved onto the RCC, we carried out CBR plate tests to make sure the formation layer was adequate for the RCC concrete.
The formation layer was agreed to be suitable, so we began the concrete delivery organising eight Ashcourt tipper wagons to consecutively supply the RCC from our Pocklington concrete plant. We had a nice steady flow of concrete totalling in 110m3 throughout the day to ensure minimal delays and increased productivity.
Finishing the job on time, the RCC was able to cure and set over the weekend for the customer to then move forklifts and machinery back onto that section of the yard.
