Liverpool2 is a £400m investment programme by Peel Ports Group to expand and develop the Port of Liverpool to become the UK’s most central deep sea container terminal. The new deep water container terminal will be able to accommodate the largest deep-sea container vessels in the global fleet. Liverpool2 will allow global shippers ‘ship-to-door’ access to the UK’s major import centres via the most economic and lowest carbon route, and provide northern-UK-based exporters with a more competitive route to market.
As a market leading specialist in the onsite production and paving of sustainable hydraulically bound and Roller Compacted Concrete mixtures, SiteBatch Technologies (an Aggregate Industries’ Contracting Service) was bought on board to help design and build a suitable pavement solution for the new extension.
As well as the supply of asphalt and roller compacted concrete, Aggregate Industries is laying the pavement using unique Titan ABG heavy duty pavers. The paver is capable of laying mixtures up to 13m wide and 300mm thick in a single layer – double the width and thickness of any other paver available on the market in the UK.
