Off-loading on Restricted Sites
The procedures below should always be followed when off-loading on restricted sites.
Ensure that the pallets are dropped so that they are never closer than 1 Oft (3.0 m) from the centerline.
Pallets should be off-loaded in the order in which they are needed for construction. For example, the pallet
containing the erection and launch components is always off-loaded first, to one side of centerline, near the
edge of the gap.
Use the dump trucks, or other unit vehicles, as anchorages for off-loading trailers.
Movement and positioning of vehicles onto restricted sites is dependent on site conditions.
Disconnect trailers in an area clear of the site and have trucks return for off-loading.
Always unload all erection and launch components and at least 2 bay loads before starting construction.
Do not use the bridge as an anchorage to off-load ramp and deck loads. Use caution when reversing
vehicles on site.
The following gives an example of off-loading a 2E + 12 bay on a restricted site.
