The UK Environment Agency has hired two new Doosan DX340LC-3 crawler excavators to demolish and remove steel box piles, rails and wood that made up old groynes on the beach at Aldeburgh in Suffolk.

On hire from Lynch, these are month the first DX340LC-3 excavators in the country.  Lynch operations director Merrill Lynch says:  “Stage IIIB machines are now being specified on many of the projects we are supplying such as Crossrail and the legacy works after the 2012 Olympics."

The Environment Agency team carried out the removal work on the old groynes on a 600m section of the beach at Aldeburgh, from the Martello Tower to the end of Slaughden Road. They removed approximately 20 steel piles and associated debris from the beach.  The work involved digging around the redundant piles and pulling them out of the ground and then back-filling with the excavated beach material.
