Using Bog Mats for Access Roads
The High-Speed 2 (HS2) project, an ambitious initiative to bridge the UK’s northern and southern regions via a high-speed rail network, represents an unprecedented collaborative effort. It brings together a wide array of suppliers and contractors from across the supply chain, highlighting the scope and scale of this ground-breaking endeavour.
We are extremely proud to play our role in this extraordinary scheme, providing crucial temporary access solutions. Our contribution takes the form of track mats, access mats, or, as they are more commonly known, bog mats. These mats ensure that the vast array of heavy machinery and equipment can be safely and efficiently transported across the diverse terrains encountered during the construction process.
This project has not just represented an engineering challenge of remarkable proportions, but it has also opened up a wealth of opportunities for businesses across the United Kingdom. The breadth of requirements for the HS2 project is vast, spanning from the needs of on-site catering facilities to various construction companies and engineering services.

HS2 Involvement from Birketts Bogmats
As the UK’s leading supplier of temporary access solutions, Birketts are delighted to be supporting a number of companies working on the HS2 project. Our access mats ensure vehicles can access the site and continue to work regardless of weather or ground conditions.
Providing a stable surface, not only allows work to continue safely, but it also helps to protect the ground underneath which is vital in ensuring minimal damage to the environment. Something that is incredibly important to all involved.
Not only do our bog mats create temporary access roads, but they can also be used to provide a stable platform for temporary buildings on site, keeping the surrounding area cleaner and free of mud, thus helping internal spaces to remain clean too.
