Cambridge Direct Tree Seeding
CDTS has completed several stages of the Manchester Metrolink Project ranging from 2-3,000m2 of conventional seeding of high profile areas, to 20,000m2 of wildflower seeding to subsoil embankments.
Due to limited access along the tram line CDTS had to adapt its hydroseeding equipment to gain to gain access to some of the embankments. One of the company's seven hydroseeders, a 3500lt unit, was mounted on to a Road Train Vehicle combined with a carriage for water making previously inaccessible areas accessible.
CDTS has worked on three of the new metro lines over the past two years. The projects are challenging due to access difficulties and working restrictions, and have included working nightshifts in order to dovetail with Laing O’Rourke’s operations.
