Tyne and Wear
The Gateshead ready mixed concrete batching plant is conveniently located north of Abbotsford Road, and only a mile from the Gateshead International Stadium – making it a prime location for Concrete Collect orders and local deliveries.
The Gateshead team have been involved with a number of prestigious projects in the area. Particularly notable, the New Tyne Crossing project to design and build a second vehicle tunnel under the River Tyne, refurbish the existing vehicle tunnel and to operate and to maintain all the tunnels under the river until 2037.
It is one of the biggest transport infrastructure projects currently active in Great Britain. The new tunnel is 1.5km in length, and the new entrance and exit approaches take the total length of new carriageway to 2.4km.
Another prominent project the team have supplied to is Littlehaven's sea defence, which was this year shortlisted for Structural Engineering Project of the Year at the Concrete Society Awards.
The Littlehaven project transformed the beach, promenade and sea defences along a stretch of South Shields seafront, turning a neglected length of coastline into a desirable visitor destination.
