March 2006

Construction of a temporary dam across an 18th century Worcestershire canal basin needed all 24 metres of reach on this reclamation contract.   The work involves excavating and treating contaminated material from a disused section of the basin, filled in during the 1950s, to enhance the marina and provide 140 new houses. 
                          
The 22m long reach is constructing a stone dam, sealed with a clay capping material, across the basin.  With a new link bridge constructed as part of the regeneration scheme, WM Plant used their new Cat 345 long reach machine to remove the dam.  The bigger machine was required due to the wet material from the dam being stockpiled on the other side of the new bridge.  The 345 has power even at full reach, in this case 24 metres, ideal for this type of project.
