Roundabout Alterations

October 31, 2016

Night Shift work - an urgent task which had to be completed quickly - our workforce pulled out all the stops to make sure this happened.  A roundabout leading to Carlisle and the M6 required a reduction in size to its embankments.  The block paving, which forms the side of the roundabout had to be taken out.  This was completed by hand and then stacked onto pallets.  The grass also had to be stripped back on one side of the roundabout to lower the level of its elevation.  This all happened overnight.  The purpose of this project was to allow wind turbines travelling from the Port of Blyth to reach their destination of Gretna Green.  The alterations to the round about were necessary to allow the transporter vehicle to safely negotiate the route without causing damage to itself, the roundabout or the cargo.
