Leicester, UK- It had all the characteristic of a complex project: an historical city centre, heritage site full of tourists, narrow access road. But it did not stop an MB Crusher from sneaking in and reclaim the old Greyfriars car park.
This car park is located next to the King Richard III Visitor Centre and a stone’s throw away from the Cathedral Church of St Martin. Usually known as Leicester Cathedral, were the remains of Richard III were buried in 2015 after being discovered nearby.
The renewal is part of a bigger expansion plan that will be carried out in the area, right in the heart of the historical site. Due to the location being a conservation area, accessibility is limited by extremely narrow streets and also the number of heavy equipment needed to be minimise.
The key was to recycle as many material on site. So an MB Crusher Bucket BF60.1 was mounted on a Caterpillar 313F excavator, to crush the hardcore available to then reuse it, totally eliminating the need to bring wagons on and off site.
