The new 26.5 hectare site will provide approximately 200,000 tonnes per annum and has reserves of an estimated 2.4 million tonnes. It is located close to the A1 giving easy access to market and with no neighbouring towns or villages between the quarry and this major highway, it means that trucks are not disturbing local communities.

“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,” saysStephen Redwood, national reserves development director, Cemex UK.

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.
