Surveying for the Heysham-M6 link road
Surveying for the Heysham-M6 link road
This rig is on the route (WSW-ENE) of the planned (but very controversial) Heysham to M6 link road, and is presumably being used to collect soil and/or rock samples.
If built, the dual-carriageway road will be on an embankment here, in order to cross over the West Coast main-line in the distance.
