Contractors working on large projects which involve laying road surfaces are increasingly trying to avoid the use of steel road pins. Driving long steel and timber pins into the ground to lay road exacerbates traffic congestion, involves a great number of engineering hours and creates a dangerous environment for the workforce as workers and road-making plant are occupying the same area often simultaneously.
This company devised an innovative solution to this problem:
The use of this technology was safer and ensured the work was done faster and with less disruption to road users. Their success was recognised, as the project team won the ‘Application of Technology’ award at the prestigious British Construction Industry 2016 Awards.
