Safe tree surgery for Teign Trees with DTH portable roadway

The project 

Davis Trackhire took on the responsibility of providing an access route and working platform, including a portable roadway, for our client. Our client, Teign Trees and Landscapes needed to carry out complex tree surgery work in a challenging location. 

They required our trackway so their equipment could safely access the location and perform the removal on a structured, even and non-slip surface.

The challenges and our portable roadway solution 

Our Project Engineer Shaun Varley visited the client on-site in Newton Abbot, Devon, to carry out a detailed site survey. This survey helped him to establish their precise portable roadway requirements. 

Shaun, soon realised that our portable roadway was to run directly under a live overhead power cable. He measured the cable at a height of 8 metres.

This required us to use GS6 Height Restrictors to ensure the safe installation of our portable roadway. In addition to this, we locked off our lorry loader crane at a safe working height of 4.5 metres. 

The outcome 

Our expert portable roadway installation crews were then able to install a 6m wide access road. They additionally installed a 9m x 30m temporary working area. They completed efficiently, in less than a day. This allowed our client to execute their site activities in a safe and timely manner. 

“We recently utilised Davis Trackhire for a project involving driving heavy ARB trucks and a mobile crane over delicate grass and land, and the experience was exceptional from start to finish. Their service was prompt, with quick delivery ensuring we could begin our work without delay. The team was incredibly friendly and communicative, working closely with us to ensure every aspect of the project was planned and executed smoothly.

Not only were they punctual in their delivery and setup, but the quality of the materials provided was top-notch, effectively protecting the ground beneath. What truly impressed us was the meticulous care taken during removal. Once the mats were gone, you wouldn’t even know they were there. The land was left immaculate, just as it was prior to our work, leaving both us and the landowner extremely pleased with the outcome.”
