Letter: Mailbag - Won't sink on steel.
I NOTE that in the Examiner concern expressed over heavy vehicles damaging the surface in Greenhead Park has, yet again, reared its head.
Has no-one on the staff of the park or the Council ever heard of Pierced Steel Planking (PSP)? This was used by the armed forces, both during and after the 1939/45 war.
Entire aircraft landing strips were built on fields using it.
While not suitable for permanent use, it was ideal for short term difficulty and would seem to be an ideal remedy for the short-term usage envisaged.
I suspect it is still in use or at least something like it.
Try the Army!
