TITLE
Entrance and traffic improvements
ARTICLE
A number of improvements have been made to the old weighbridge complex at this quarry. The entrance road was widened and signage placed overhead. A pedestrian walkway and cycle path was also constructed. The visitors’ car park is now pedestrian friendly too and there are clear directions for drivers.

The vehicles are weighed at a ‘check point’ to prevent them from reaching the ‘out-bridge’ with the incorrect weight. Overall it has produced a safer, more environmentally sound and swifter experience.
