After removing over 200 loads from the first phase of this site in South West London late last year via excavator loading, we have now returned to remove the next phase of Inert Soil via the “Gecko Truck Loader”, which is lifted into the basement via the on site tower crane and loaded by excavator, 3 loads of the Gecko and the tipper is filled and on its way.
Lynch Haulage, is working alongside Costain Skanska on the A14 Improvement scheme is an upgrade of the A14 between Ellington and Milton. We are providing inducted Drivers and 8 Wheel Tippers on a daily basis. The Lorries have assisted moving material around the various sites and compounds on this very important Highways Infrastructure project.
All of the lorries used on Site have Automatic Tailgates meaning the drivers do not need to get out of the Cab to tip the load, an important safety feature when working on live carriageways.
Last Weekend we provided 4 tipper lorries on rolling shifts from 10am Saturday Morning until 10PM Sunday night, moving Spent track ballast from the worksite on the District Line between Earls Court and Gloucester Road and the rail Depot in Ruislip. The drivers are all fully FORS inducted. Lynch have been carrying out this type of work for the Track Partnership for 5 years, we have not had a single operator let down on these very time sensitive projects, where if there is a delay in the Transport of the Ballast it could prevent the Tube from running on the Monday Morning.
L Lynch Plant Hire & Haulage was appointed to supply operated plant to assist with the excavation of the main shaft (63m in depth x 37m diameter) as well as removal of spoil via barges up and down the Thames.
A 200 + workforce (including 100+ operators) was handpicked for this 24/7 operation and in total 70,000 man hours completed the project over a 12 week period with 235,000 tonnes of spoil being excavated and transported away from the shaft. Throughout this period of non-stop activity there were zero accidents and zero incidents with the job being completed ahead of schedule meaning a significant cost saving to client. The Lynch team were also presented with a performance award for working well on the jetty and supporting smooth operations as well as keeping the local residents happy.
Kirtling St & Heathwall Project Manager, Ponciano Perez Lupi, was full of praise for the fantastic co-opetration shown throughout the project and added “We have excavated to a 53 metres depth of our KTRST shaft, removing almost 45,000m3 of spoil. This has been a great achievement from L Lynch and FLO teams, demonstrating a strong teamwork to deliver safely these works”.
Every year our principal directors Merrill and Rob Lynch along with their younger brother Darren (far right) take on a challenge to raise money for The Lighthouse Club. This charity provides financial and emotional support to the construction community and their families. Last year the three brothers conquered the ‘Three Peaks Challenge’, raising over £3,000 for this worthy cause in the process. This April they are looking to raise even more money for the Charity and the trio will take to the capital to run the 26.2 miles of the London Marathon.
