Watford: London Concrete batching plant
Watford: London Concrete batching plant
A batching plant precisely mixes the raw materials of concrete ready for delivery to a construction site by a truck mounted transit mixer. London Concrete's batching plants are all deliberately built next to railways to allow the delivery of the raw material aggregates by rail rather than by road, thus reducing the number of lorry movements. This one is located in the sidings to the north of Watford Junction station. The railway line in the near foreground though is the single track branch line to St Albans Abbey. This photograph was taken from the station car park. London Concrete's website is here LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
