Collett Moves Dales Tubes

Delivery to Grinton

Haulage specialist Collett & Sons has transported four giant steel tubes from Cleveland Steel & Tubes Depot to the Yorkshire Dales in the UK.

The cargo was loaded on a Mercedes-Benz Actros 8x4 for the 90 mile journey to the remote delivery site in Grinton. Fitted with a 80-tonne crane, the vehicle featured five boom extensions and a maximum lifting capacity of 23 tonnes.

“Once in place the tubes will be used to divert the waterway, allowing for the construction of a temporary bridge and restoring access for residents and tourist, with the construction of a traditional Dales masonry bridge
scheduled for later in the year,” a spokesperson for Collett said.  

Based in Halifax, England, Collett & Sons operates a fleet of heavy-lift trucks, trailers and SPMTs and provides breakbulk logistics throughout the UK and Europe.
