This case study focuses on the Norwich Northern Distributor Road, which is a 12.4 mile (20.0 km) dual-carriageway linking the south-east of the city to the north-west of the city. The road is designated the A1270, and will open in the Spring of 2018, when it will be named the Broadland Northway. Its construction was managed by primary contractor Balfour Beatty, with Flannery Plant Hire chosen as the main earthworks contractor.
Flannery has supplied a range of equipment including the latest CAT 730C Ejector Truck and CAT 336F Hybrid Excavator to the project. Flannery have invested heavily in equipment for this project with a particular focus on connected machinery and the CAT Production Management System.
