While everyone was tucked up in bed this morning we were applying a biocide treating moss and algae on a military airfield before it went live a 7.30am!
The total area covered was 175,000 sq /m. This was Phase 1 of a contract won by Lafarge Tarmac to upgrade the friction surface of the runway. Once the biocide has killed the moss, algae and lichen present, it will be sprayed with tar and then the markings will be repainted.
All in a day’s work – or in this case, a very early morning’s work and our trusty Bateman rb55 hard at work.
