Project brief: WBM has been advising Lafarge Tarmac and MQP for more than twenty years at their Old and New Cliffe Hill Quarries in Leicestershire. We liaised closely with the local environmental health authorities in connection with the extended night-time use of the train loading facility.
Acoustic aspects: Meetings and negotiations with the County Council were required to establish sensible noise limits and hours of operation for different elements within the quarry complex, followed by regular compliance monitoring and reporting for daytime, evening and night-time periods.
Outcome: The photograph shows the primary crusher in Old Cliffe Hill after that was reopened via a tunnel to New Cliffe Hill for the transport of material by conveyor and dump trucks. WBM continues to be involved in assisting the operators as they develop Old Cliffe Hill further, guaranteeing supply from this important quarry.
