TITLE
Bitumen delivery improvements
ARTICLE
A number of initiatives have been introduced to make bitumen deliveries safer.

On arrival, the delivery driver is issued with a hand held radio to ensure constant communication.

Among the improvements are new lockable anti-splash boxes fitted to the end of filler pipes which prevent discharge into the wrong tank. There have also been improvements to the high level alarm system at the site.
