In 2010, Eastern Plant Hire began working with AbiGroup on the 13.5km main freeway section of the $188m Nagambie bypass. In addition to supplying Trucks and Equipment on hire, EPH also undertook the stripping and blending of material from the GVR quarry to meet VicRoads Type A and Type B specifications, which produced over 600,000T of material. In an industry first, EPH purchased the only certifiable portable weighbridge available in Victoria, which allowed us to guarantee that every load that we loaded, weighed and delivered was done in a safe and legal manner, with not a single load leaving site overloaded. This weighbridge is something which we are now proud to be able to offer all major civil projects.
When we integrated the weighbridge with our Imarda 360 GPS, EPH was able to produce accurate and timely productivity data and costings to our client. Being located in a regional area, EPH also worked with AbiGroup to include local subcontractors in our work.
