CEMEX Construction Services, part of the global building solutions company CEMEX, has introduced the first Roadtech Shuttle Buggy into the UK. It is the only one of its type operating in this country.
The buggy has been operating on the M6, where it has successfully been used to lay performance asphalt. Using this piece of equipment ensures that no vehicles come into contact with the surface being laid, improving the quality of the finished surface.
As well as the benefit of a greatly improved finish, the use of this machine trebles output, ensures consistent temperatures and allows storage of surfacing material during operation.
For CEMEX customers, the use of the buggy will not only improve output and reliability but will be of considerable benefit in resurfacing bridges when material can be loaded from the side.
The Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) will be looking at the buggy during ongoing research into improving speed and quality of road surfaces.
