Road Metals - over the Lindis and Haast Passes

Road Metals have quarries in many locations in the South Island, and moving one of their aggregate plants is an exercise in logistics and planning.

The two day shift took them over the Lindis Pass, along Lake Hawea and then over the Haast Pass to their site on the West Coast.

This route, while scenic, is noted for some very tight roading and one bridge in particular that requires some jostling with a front end loader for some of the semi-trailers to get around.

This Mack and Volvo fleet is one of the stand-outs in it’s industry.
