Ridgewood Contracts - Coronation Street 1

Supplying Coronation Street with soil

One of the Ridgewood Contracts Grab Lorries made a trip up north this week to the set of Coronation Street to drop off a load of soil for work on the site.

Now, over the years we have helped lay the foundations and worked on a number of different buildings and pieces of land across the country, however non so famous as this address, so when we got the call we couldn’t resist capturing the moment on camera.

Our driver for this job, Jon McAleenan took a few photographs of our new Mercedes Grab Lorry dropping the load outside the studios and in front of the impressive Media City location (see below and click to enlarge).

The Coronation Street set moved from its previous venue at Granda film studios in the centre of Manchester to the current address at Salford Quays in 2013, where both ITV and the BBC have studio’s within the Media City development.
