The scale of things to come – HS2 station to be the largest station ever built in the UK

The announcement this week that the Old Oak Common station will be built as the UKs largest station – is a grandiose statement. Especially when we can look back on a grand era of Victoriana and remark on some of their major construction achievements. On balance, everything the Victorians did was bigger and to a certain degree better. With major construction from that era standing the test of time and sticking around to this day. With perhaps only the gauge of railways slightly restrictive – we cheer them as the rest was spot on. The Old Oak Common Station name…

Manchester - The City of Growth

Manchester, a city currently tormenting the masses with roadworks at every major junction. It’s also a city leading the construction boom being experienced across the North West. As the rest of the country slowly awakes from its slumber, experiencing a 0.4% increase in construction output in February 2019[1], the North West, and Manchester in particular, continues to see an increase in the number of construction projects. Continuing on from a tremendous Aug-Nov 2018, which saw total construction output increase by almost 15% compared to Aug-Nov 2017[2], the market is showing no signs of slowing down with the number of cranes…

HGV Safety Permits and The Future

The world of waste management will be changing in London in the next few years. After almost two years of consultations and developments, the Transport for London has announced concrete plans to implement a requirement of safety permits for all HGVs over 12 tonnes entering London. The Direct Vision Standard (DVS) was designed to improve the safety of vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists that would otherwise be unseen by HGV when in transport or collecting waste. The standard utilises a 5 star system rating all HGVs with 0 being the lowest and 5 the highest. A…

Site Storage

When completing a refurbishment or shopfitting project, one of the challenges you are faced with is where to store equipment that is already on-site.

PAL Hire should be the first company that comes to mind when thinking about hiring site storage containers, gas containers, and tool boxes. We also offer storage stacking services if you require two or more containers – this can be discussed with our team when you call 0844 288 7265. PAL…

How far has modern Plant Machinery come?

Modern machinery as we know it has come a long way. Necessity being the mother of invention has enabled the ability for the completion of bigger civil engineering projects. From the construction of canals, roads, through to railways and modern motorways, the need to deliver projects on time and on budget has driven change. The nation’s infrastructure bears testament to the numerous changes in civil engineering and how mechanisation has improved projects. It is hard to think that the construction of Egypt’s pyramids occurred about four thousand years ago, yet it was only in the past 200 years that mechanisation…
