Last week saw the first scheme to supply the new Thin Surfacing asphalt material, specified by Transport Scotland, out of our Coating Plant at Cowieslinn Quarry. The Technical Team headed by Derek Sim and the Team at Southam Lab have worked tirelessly to get the site and business through the various levels of approvals and trials over the last 24 months.
John Macsween Smith, Asphalt Ops Northern, commented: “Wednesday saw the first order following approval and it is pleasing that it all went well from the transport planning, production and technical sides. The site successfully supplied close to 800 tonnes of the material over 3 days to a site on the A702 Hazelburn to Scottish Borders Council.
Well done to the full Team on site involved – Derek Sim (Senior & Junior), Linsey Gibson, Dan Fairer, Bryan Walkinshaw and Jane Manson – on helping the week go so well.
