A new quarry at Cromwell, Lincolnshire has just started supplying high quality sand and gravel into the local north Nottinghamshire markets.
The new 26.5 hectare site is located close to the A1 giving easy access to key markets on trunk roads.
“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 supplied and operated by Duo includes a Terex aggregates and wash plant, triple deck rising screen plus sizing and dewatering screens to process 0/4 sharp sand, and 10mm gravel, 20mm and 40mm gravel. As the minerals are extracted the site will be gradually restored to wetlands.
