Infrastructure projects are approached with creativity and innovation to ensure client expectations are exceeded.
Jones Bros created a 3.6Km long, 12m wide, world-class superbike standard racetrack for Trac Môn Ltd on Anglesey.
The site was originally an MOD missile firing range so before any work could be done the entire site had to be checked for buried military ordinances.
350,000 cubic meters of soil and rock excavated throughout circuit construction remained on site, and the establishment of an on-site quarry or ‘borrow pit’ supplied all the required stone for drainage, capping, sub-base and the tarmac base course.
This significantly reduced the cost of the project and saved on fuel plus local disruption by keeping an estimated 3,500 return truck journeys off the local roads.
The lower road base was produced on-site using a specialised foaming plant which cold-mixed raw aggregate, pulverised fuel ash, cement & foamed bitumen.
The binder was a conventional heavy-duty design mix, while the surface course was a more specialised product consisting of 6mm high PSV aggregate with a polymer modified binder for increased durability & longevity, known as the “Brands Hatch Mix”.
