CASE STUDY: M56 Blocked Culvert Clean
We’ve been doing incredible work on the M56! MEGATRON, our brilliant industry leading vacuum tanker, was on site to clear a 1000mm blocked culvert! The trash screen that was present was severely damaged and was removed for us to access the huge culvert. It ran underneath the M56, 6 lanes + hard shoulders through to a farmer’s field. The huge tunnel was approximately 8m off the M56 carriageway. This was no access issue for Megatron’s powerful suction and Hydro Cleansing’s hose. We used a cofferdam to halt the flow of water and allow the confined space team to access the blocked culvert.
6000 gallon bulk tanker removed the waste. Our fantastic confined space engineers cleared the huge culvert with extraordinary efficiency! You can’t beat our engineers for hard work and passion!
Over the past few years the silt had built up and blocked the inlet of the culvert this in turn meant that whenever it rained, it flooded the surrounding area/fields on the west bound carriageway. Hydro Cleansing cleared all the slit and debris from the blocked culvert and tipped slurry off site. The culvert is now free from debris and the stream free flowing. A new trash screen was installed.
