A-Plant inventory under the hammer

Digger Blogger | 11:49, Wed February 21 2018

A-Plant clearly looks after its equipment reasonably well, judging by the success of a recent auction of surplus inventory.

Over a busy couple of days Ritchie Bros Auctioneers sold off more than 1,000 pieces of equipment that A-Plant no longer wanted, including excavators, dumpers, compressors, lifts and more.

The auction took place at the Rockingham Motor Speedway track on 8th and 9th February 2018 and attracted hundreds of visitors, both on site and online. It was initially billed as a one-day event but clearly there was too much stuff to get rid of in just a single day.

Spoil recycling helps protect ancient monument

Digger Blogger | 11:32, Wed February 14 2018

Local civil engineering contractor Danaher & Walsh was recently appointed by the Diocese of Leicester to rebuild a car park on New Street in the old quarter of Leicester, close to the city’s cathedral.

The car park is of historical significance as it is on the former site of Grey Friars Priory, the original burial place of King Richard III. It is adjacent to the council-owned car park on which the king’s remains were exhumed in 2012. In fact, the New Street car park was one of three possible sites originally identified for excavation by archaeologists from the outset of the project to locate the remains of Richard III. Danaher & Walsh’s works took place just 30 metres from the King’s original resting place.

Richard III was killed at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 after just two years on the throne, bringing an end to the York dynasty, to be succeeded by the Welsh Tudor family.  The discovery of his final resting place attracted much media attention back in 2012. It is now the Richard III museum and the area has been designated a Scheduled Ancient Monument.
