TITLE
Asphalt plant loading display
ARTICLE
A television monitor has been installed at Colemans Quarry to ensure that loading at the asphalt plant is managed safely.

Encased in a specialised weatherproof box, the monitor is located within a guarded-off area to the front of the plant giving lorry drivers a perfect view of the screen.

The information displayed includes tonnage of load, material being loaded and also has a timer to count down to when the next batch will be dropped from the mixer.

The system stops drivers pulling out from under the plant prematurely, increasing driver safety.
