PD 1st pic is actually part of the filling process, we dump the water then use a grader to essentially turn a furrow and add more water and turn it back to mix it properly, then grade off level and compact.

Mart, the subbase on this job is coming from Oman, however there are a lot of quarries in the northern emirates which is probably a 5 hour round trip in a truck. We bring it in 45 m3 trailers and stockpile it at site then shift it around with 6 wheels as and where we need it. Plenty of water normally does it for the formation, depends on the type of sand as well.

Cheers scroff, horses for courses I suppose, it wasn't somewhere I thought I'd end up. Apart from the high cost of living it's a great place, well worth seeing once at least.

Ah, thatís interesting: I guess too dry and itíll be impossible to compact.
