Process Description & Equipment Supplied
DPS were contracted by Veolia Water to improve the access road at Armagh Wastewater Treatment Works. The repair work commenced at the start of the access road (just off the main road) and ran through to within the site boundary to the admin building. The road is used by personnel working and visiting the site. In addition, the road is also used by HGVs for sludge tanker exports and septage imports (domestic and trade). Approximately 20 to 25 HGVs visit site per week so this had to be taken into consideration when designing the new road.
Using our appointed civil partner, the existing road was excavated/planed in preparation for surfacing, then 100mm deep base course was laid followed by 40mm deep surface course (SMA bitmac & asphalt). Other works involved required the replacing of the existing road drainage system due to its poor condition, protecting any existing cable ducts with concrete surrounds and all road gullies and manhole lids were also replaced.
