Tarmac first to trial new concrete mixer

Published by
World Cement,

Tarmac has become the first company in the UK to trial a new Econic concrete mixer, underlining its commitment to improving vulnerable road user safety.

The vehicle has been designed by Mercedes-Benz to improve the driver’s field of vision, particularly on busy urban roads. It features a panoramic windscreen and floor-to-ceiling doors, allowing drivers with improved visibility of cyclists particularly if they approach the nearside of the vehicle, a key blind spot in traditional-modelled vehicles.

Tarmac is trialling the 26 t concrete mixer with 6 metres’ capacity at its Silvertown ready mix concrete plant in London.
