Mount Sorrell Quarry Visit

Richard Romaszko (TXM Plant Assurance Director) and Mike Torrington (TXM Rail Head of SHEQ), attended Tarmac’s Mountsorrel Quarry organised by the Ballast Dust Working Group (BDWG). 

This visit formed part of the general BDWG meetings and incorporated a tour of the quarry by Tarmac.  Tarmac provided an overview of the entire manufacturing process for track ballast and the controls in place to minimise/ prevent the spread of dust.  

The visit provided the group with additional insight into the specific control measures implement at the quarry in order to minimise the amount/ spread of dust when it is delivered to site.
