A new quarry in Cromwell, Lincolnshire, has started to supply high quality sand and gravel to the local north Nottinghamshire markets.
The new site is located close to the A1 to allow east access to key markets on truck loads. The site covers 26.5 hectares.
“This quarry is an important development for the business and is part of our Aggregates Development plan, which will see us investing in new quarries, new plants and building a new wharf to increase our UK production,” comments Stephen Redwood, National Reserves Development Director.
The plant is supplied and operated by Duo and includes a Terex aggregates and plant wash, triple deck rising screen plus sizing and dewatering screens to process 0/4 sharp sand and 10 mm gravel, 20 mm and 40 mm gravel. As the minerals are extracted the will gradually be restored to wetlands.
