    Hello,
    Just wondering how concrete slabs are laid on country as concrete trucks can only last a maximum of two hours, when the nearest towns/cities are much further away. While slabs are made of way too much concrete to mix by hand. Do you happen to have an explanation on how this has been done in the past.
    Thanks

    Hi Tyson,

    Thanks for your question, and great to see your consideration of the remoteness of communities in Cape York.

    In the past when large concrete slabs have been laid, instead of being mixed prior to being transported the components have been mixed on site in Cape York.

    Hope this helps, and good luck with your project!

    Hey Rachael,
    Mixing enough concrete by hand for a slab is unfeasible. I assume you mean they mix it in a truck on site with the components brought and water from country used?

    Hi Tyson,

    Yes that’s correct, apologies that wasn’t clearer in my first answer!

    Thanks,
    Rachel
