Another track the lads have just finished, as you can see they have scraped it off level, brought in the sides and topped it off with scalps :D

A small woodland walk of about a kilometer, sub base, membrane and scalps with no edges. Just needs a rake and roll on the way out.

 

Dinky little temporary bridge  out of concrete sleepers to get the machines over.

And a steel fence + a load of kissing gates to keep out the hooligans.

Better than my drive, that! Out of interest, can I ask what sort of cost per metre are we looking at? (For something that will support a reasonable amount of car and van traffic...) Thanks.

Not so sure you would want the sort of tracks/roads we put in at home. Most of these are woodland or country estate tracks/roads,  last one we did at a house was hundreds of meters long and about 4mts wide with railway sleepers for edgings. That came out at about £60 per linear meter for sub base, membrane ,scalps and sleepers.

A few hundred meters of chain trenching we did for a shingle land drain from a waterlogged/blocked roadside  drain to a brook . The three ton diggers on site were struggling with the rock hard ground, chain had it all done in about an hour.

Have you put a maintence programme together for annual servicing of the treatment plants? 

 

The surface water outfall idealy needs a concrete pad for the water to drop onto to prevent the ditch getting washed away.
