TITLE
Edge protection: bund height markers
ARTICLE
At Baston Fen Quarry in Market Deeping, the problem of maintaining and checking safety bund heights has been overcome with some simple physical markers.

The minimum height markers, made by placing a tube in a 45-gallon drum and backfilling with rejected asphalt, are placed at regular intervals along the bund.

This is particularly important at Baston Fen, where lagoons exist on either side of a haul road. Should the bund level drop too low, the lagoons are in danger of flooding, potentially causing a road accident.
