LAWSONS HAULAGE

HeavyTorque Issue Ten: Lawsons Haulage Ltd

ANGLE OF TRACK

ONE OF THE INNOVATIONS THAT REALLY CAUGHT THE EYE AT THE HEAVIES 2017 WAS THE TILTING TRAILER DESIGNED AND DEVELOPED BY LAWSONS HAULAGE FOR ITS WORK IN THE RAIL SECTOR. THE TRAILER FEATURES A PLATFORM THAT CAN BE TILTED UP TO 41°, ENABLING MODULAR RAIL PANELS, THAT MAY BE 5M WIDE WHEN FLAT, TO BE TRANSPORTED FAR MORE EASILY ON UK ROADS. MARGO COLE REPORTS.

Lawsons developed the trailer in response to Network Rail’s increasing demand for modular sections of track, particularly switches and crossings. In the past, these have been moved by specially adapted rail wagons, but any particularly wide sections had to be dismantled so they would fit within the rail envelope, and then reassembled on site, effectively negating some of the benefits of modular fabrication. Also, it’s not always possible to get from factory to site by rail, so some form of road transport is required. Lawsons’ new tilting trailer simplifies this entire process.

Announcement

HeavyTorque White Logo

It is with regret, that the HeavyTorque team have decided to take a stand based on an industry-wide ‘blind eye’ to the waste in the magazine and periodicals business.

HeavyTorque (#15, July 2018) was the final issue to grace the shop shelves, both on the High Street and across the travel network. As part of our onward strategy to adapt, HeavyTorque will now be distributed exclusively through controlled circulation and available through printed subscription.

Please note, this change will only affect newsstand purchasers. There will be no change for our loyal print subscribers.

Why the newsstand change? Quite simply, we can no longer (in good conscience) participate in a distribution programme that creates such an inherent waste of our precious natural resources – and money.

For those of you who have enjoyed HeavyTorque from the newsstand, we sincerely appreciate your business – and we would hope that you’ve enjoyed the magazine enough to consider a direct subscription?
