TITLE
Bitumen ground pumps and safety shelter
ARTICLE
The Aggregate Industries asphalt plant at Weaste has made a number of changes to make the delivery of bitumen safer:

- Traffic routing has been changed to increase the visibility of the weighbridge when overseeing the discharging of tankers.
- Bitumen delivery has been changed from a pressurised delivery system to pump delivery.
- A safe area, fitted with an emergency stop button, has been erected where
drivers stand while tankers are discharging.
- A new ground pump system and level indication has also reduced the likelihood of overfill.
