Asphalting Operation into low clear height tunnels

Asphalting Operation into low clear height tunnels

Asphalting Operation into low clear height tunnels

Dear All

I'm looking for an asphalting expert to advise how to deliver the hot asphalt material into a tunnel through an asphalting operation, the tunnel height is low as 5 to 6 meters, which does not allow the big tipper truck to open the dumping jack.

The Tunnel length is 2200 meters (double Cell )

there is one solution to use a Live bottom trailer but this equipment is not available in Saudi Arabia
another solution is to use Buggy Asphalt Shuttler, but this is eq. is not available, expensive, has a long lead time, and does batch shuttling only.

the best solution will be a Hot material conveying system to move the material from the truck unloader directly and in a telescopic mechanism to the paver feeding hopper.

Tarmac achieved a world-class finish to Catesby Tunnel, I hope somebody knows one of the asphalting teams who participated in the project, so I can contact him.
