Tyndale Roadstone's Barton Plant welcomes Work Experience Students

Friday, July 14 2017

Monday 10th July saw two year 12 students from Richmond School attend Tynedale Roadstones Barton Plant for a week of work experience

Shusil Malla and Bruno Dias spent the week learning about Asphalt Production under the guidance of Production Plant Manager Dave Whitehouse and Graduate Will Slack

The students were given a full safety induction, followed by a tour of the plant  in order to understand the production process

As the week progressed , they tried aggregate sampling and testing, producing results and checking against compliance

Transport, logistics, delivery, the use of binders and bitumen completed a full week of a meaningful engagement with industry for Shusil and Bruno

Dave Whitehouse said 'Both Bruno and Shusil were a credit to themselves and Richmond School. They were punctual, polite and had a great attitude to work. They were very interested in the asphalt production process and were happy to complete the tasks that were given to them'

Bruno and Shusil are both hoping to progress onto careers in engineering, we wish them the very best of luck!
