Our aerial lifting equipment and aggregates has kept our team busy during May repairing eroded pathways on parts of the Ogwen Valley.
It’s the sort of work we have to carry out year on year to repair the damage done by the elements, but mostly the vast numbers of visitors to The valley which lies to the south of Bangor. It is bordered one side by the Glyderau mountain range and on the other by the Carneddau. The River Ogwen (Afon Ogwen in Welsh) flows through it, separating the two mountain ranges. The valley is a part of Snowdonia National Park.
It offers challenging but rewarding walks across along ancient peat bogs, heather clad moors, many lake and rolling farmland. The Limestone hills give an extra challenge to those a little more adventurous.
As is is such a popular attraction, we are asked to make repair to some of the more popular sites but also help ground teams by Aerial Lifting equipment and heavy machinery to more remote areas so that the ground teams can carry out essential repairs with heavy machinery.
As you will see by this short video, with our Aerial lifting skills it can make short work of what would otherwise be a labour intensive job. The sheep don’t seem to mind the spectacle either!
