Grab Hire in London for Transporting Aggregates


Grab hire in London performs many tasks, including the construction and maintenance of the road system. The Road Surface Treatments Association says that it takes between 20,000 and 60,000 tonnes of aggregate to build one mile of motorway. This puts into perspective the vast quantity of materials needed to build and maintain the highway and local road network in and around the nation’s capital city. Keeping traffic moving across all 32 borough’s requires a complex road maintenance programme. The best vehicles to carry construction aggregates is the tipper lorry. The most versatile of these being the tipper grab thanks to its incorporated bucket and extendable arm.
