WX64 ZHY Highways Agency MAN / Angloco High Volume Pump with demountable pods.
This is the first fire engine-style vehicle of its kind for the Highways Agency and will be used to reduce the levels of flooding on major trunk roads. The pumps can move 9,000 litres per minute of water using 1,000 metres of hoses. Regular fire appliances are used when there is a risk to life due to flooding, but this vehicle is aimed at opening roads sooner. The unit will be based on the A1 at Bradbury and if successful could be followed by more such vehicles.Share this with | Follow us on
