Chalvey: Slough Borough Council salt dome
Chalvey: Slough Borough Council salt dome
Located at the rear of Slough Borough Council's Chalvey depot is this modern salt dome building. These circular buildings with wooden roofs are specifically designed to store salt to be used on roads during the winter without the salt being damaged by dampness during storage and by minimizing the risk of salt being leached into the ground or into the drainage system. They are also designed to enable the efficient delivery of the salt by HGVs and then the quick and efficient loading of distribution gritting vehicles.
