Haulage celebrates HS2 one-year anniversary

July marks one year since Lynch commenced haulage on the HS2 project at Euston and to celebrate this anniversary our haulage team have managed to compile some key facts as shown below from the project to date.

If we say so ourselves this is a brilliant result from everybody connected to the HS2 project.

The constrictions of removing such vast amounts of muck away from the middle of London and recycling the majority of it is no mean feat and we must recognise the great contribution our wonderful drivers have played in this achievement. Just another example of team Lynch ‘Meeting Hire Demands’.

If you would like more details about our excellent 24hr haulage and muck away service then please call Elayne or Craig on 020 8900 9992.

Charing Cross Road project sees 4,329 loads of muck away removed

Lynch was selected to work alongside Cantillon for the removal of Inert Muck Away from the former Foyles book shop on the Charing Cross Road.

The job commenced on the 16th July 2018 and the last load was removed on the 13th April 2019. During these nine months 4,329 loads (79569.32T) of muck away was removed.

The project involved excavating to a depth of 30 meters across the site (any lower and this excavation was in danger of breaching the Northern Line which runs tunnels just beneath).

Early engagement with the site logistics team highlighted the timing issues that would occur on site due to the busy Charing Cross Road. We worked together as a team and located an area of Soho Square which could be utilised as a holding bay for the lorries in this busy area. We also worked around other specialists including pilers, concrete sprayers and heavy cranes to ensure all loads were removed to the programme required by Cantillon.

The estimated turnover on this project was over £1 million.

More teams needed for the Lynch charity ‘Lorry Pull’ competition

Lynch is supporting Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity as our nominated charity and to help us raise more money for this noble cause we are organizing a ‘Lorry Pull’ competition!! The event will now be held on Sat 14th Sept from 10am at the Lynch Hemel depot and we are still looking for more companies or individuals to enter a team of 10 people. If you are interested in entering a team please contact elaynej@l-lynch.com for more details.

The idea is that teams will compete against each other as well as the clock to pull our special Rainbow Trust lorry over a distance of 25 metres. The team with the fastest time will win the event and can look forward to the prestige and bragging rights of being the ‘strongest pullers’ in town!!

However, there will be a handicap system at work. Each lorry will start fully loaded with 18T of muck in it. To reduce the load prior to the competition, teams will be able to donate money to the charity. For every £1 raised 10kg of muck will be removed from the lorry. So if your team wants to start with the advantage of an empty lorry, £1,800 will need to be raised prior to the competition.

So, don’t be shy, enter a team into what should be a fun day for a worthy cause!
