With the UK’s transportation infrastructure struggling to cope with the increasing number of cars on the road, it falls to the government to innovate and find new ways to cope with the problem.

One of these struggling vital roads is the A15, also known as The Lincoln Eastern Bypass.

To help ease congestion, a new stretch of roadway has been designed to improve Lincoln’s infrastructure – with the bonus of encouraging growth in the area thanks to the improved connection.

In order to carry out such an advanced task, returning client Galliford Try PLC enlisted John Owen (Aggregates) to help deliver the aggregate needed to build the road.

John Owen (Aggregates) knew just what to do and how to do it. With the help of their modern state of the art fleet of vehicles, the aggregate supplier began delivering the thousands of tonnes required for this project.

One of the UK’s leading suppliers of bulk aggregates, John Owen (Aggregates), attended the Tip-Ex Tank-Ex exhibition alongside Scania to showcase their latest fleet.

The exhibition has become a must-attend event for businesses and consumers involved in the tipper and bulk transport sectors.

Nine truck manufactures attended the event, two of which (Scania and Harsh (UK) Ltd) showcased their latest delivery of trucks commissioned by John Owen (Aggregates).
Harsh (UK) Ltd was picking up attention as they had also had one of John Owen’s newly commissioned Scania trucks on display outside the exhibition entrance.

On display at the event, which took place at the Harrogate Convention Centre between 30 May and 1 June, was one of 14 Scania P370 B8x4 from John Owen (Aggregates)’s most recent delivery.

The introduction of the updated fleet complements the Aggregates Supplier’s determination to reduce its impact on the environment, one of their main focuses this year to mark the business’ 55-year milestone.

The new Euro 6 trucks boast much-improved fuel economy and reduced oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) emissions, all while the 13 Litre six-cylinder engine still produces 370bhp thanks to the addition of AdBlue.

The event also focused on safety and new technologies, hosting seminars across the event period in which all manners of driver safety, machinery and fuel-saving innovations were discussed.
