One of our recent modular pontoon installations is providing a working platform for essential works to the riverside wall in Taunton. With ground anchors to the bank, the 25m single layered pontoon has dual access points to guarantee a one way system for operatives accessing and leaving the site on the River Tone. An additional 3 layers of pontoon either end of the platform enable the stable positioning of 2 m ramps from the river bank and a second 4 m ramp leading onto the pontoon. The installation is completed with full Combisafe edge protection guaranteeing the safety of the work force.
This project is part of the Riverside at Coal Orchard, a development of homes, shops, offices and leisure facilities near the Brewhouse Theatre in Taunton. The regeneration of this area of waterfront is a positive move for the thriving town, bringing more jobs and housing to the area. We are delighted to be working on this development so close to our offices.
