SELWYN TIMES Tuesday June 28 2016 7 • By Tom Doudney ews Fulton Hogan’s $1m underpass Underpass expected to reduce transport costs and improve traffic FULTON HOGAN has spent $1 million on installing an underpass underneath a public road to connect two sides of its Miners Rd quarry in Yaldhurst. The underpass, which links the two 40ha sections of quarry either side of the road, is expected to reduce transport costs for the company by saving 30,000 truck movements a year. While its processing plant is on the east side of Miners Rd, most of its extraction is taking place on the west side. An electric conveyor belt more than 1km long will transport material for crushing from one side to the other and this is expected to be up and running within the next month. Fulton Hogan environmental manager Peter Savage said getting the material from the extraction areas to the processing plant currently involved a 2.5km round trip for each truckload and the company had wanted to find a better way. “Digging up Miners Rd wasn’t an option,” Mr Savage said. “So quite simply we ran the numbers on the pure economics of putting in an underpass as opposed to carting with the trucks.” Not having to send so many trucks across Miners Rd would improve the traffic situation for other road users as well. “You can’t really put a price on the safety aspect of taking those trucks off the road and obviously it also reduces the emissions from those trucks,” Mr Savage said. The reduction in truck movements was expected to reduce the company’s CO2 emissions by between 130 and 180 tonnes a year. Mr Savage said the conveyor belt was “like a giant Meccano set” which would have extra sections bolted onto it as needed to reach new extraction areas in the quarry.

The disaster claimed the lives of well-known Christchurch mountaineer John Harrison, as well as four young climbers, Bruce Ferguson of Christchurch, Colin Robertson of Invercargill, and Englishmen Michael Harper and Jeffrey Wilby. About 90 people attended the service, including Mr Harrison’s widow Annie McGregor, as well as other friends and family members of those who died and people who had been in the rescue parties as the tragedy unfolded. A memorial to Mr Harrison in the shape of a boot with a plaque was blessed at the service and is expected to be placed behind the chapel later in the year. The four young climbers died after becoming trapped on the mountain, while Mr Harrison was camped with a rescue party when they were hit by an avalanche.
