Rock Deliveries from Scotland
Although the majority of the rock is sourced from North Wales quarries, we have had to procure rock from Glensanda Quarry in Scotland, so as to guarantee a steady supply, and meet the project completion date. This Scottish rock is bought by barge to Ellesmere Port dock, each barge containing 4,500 tons of rock. In all we have received 9 barge deliveries so far. The rock is then delivered by road haulage from Ellesmere Port to Rhyl. The delivery of Welsh rock by road will continue throughout the remaining revetment construction timescale.
