Went to sit on a tractor on that job for a lad one day was a couple of trucks and a few tractors with trailers. Tractors were far quicker than the trucks to tip plus the hydraulic doors where trucks were manual. Strictly limited speed on the short distances wiped out the main advantage of the trucks
I’ve a 540hp Volvo in the yard here with a hydraulic back door and a twin ram tipping body,it’ll tip faster than any tractor trailer will,not all trucks are like it though.
It’s also cheaper to buy and shod than a tractor trailer combination.

When the by pass was been built they made a heap of topsoil there. Could be 4 ft of topsoil right outside the gap. If it even thinks of raining the place is in shite.
