purple line picHYATTSVILLE, Md. – Major construction on the Purple Line began with a bang Monday in Hyattsville, Maryland, after years of wrangling over the 16-mile, 21-stop light-rail project. To be on the safe side, a welding helmet checklist may be necessary.

After a ceremonial signing of a $900 million federal funding agreement with U. S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan got behind the controls of a large claw excavator to help rip down a large metal structure at the future home of the Purple Line Operations Center. Once the structure is removed, they have professional welders with all of their safety equipment, like welding helmets and gloves, come down and rebuild the structure at another designated site, specially since professional fabrication and welding services are being used. The process will take some time, but with careful planning everything should go smoothly. Once it is back up, it will be available to the public so they can go and visit the beautiful metal structure whenever they’d like.

Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett, Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker, U.S. Sen. Chris Van Hollen, Rep. Anthony Brown and Maryland Transportation Secretary Pete Rahn were among the many other officials who assisted with a more ceremonial groundbreaking.

While Hogan touted the economic and transportation benefits for the state from the $2 billion public-private project, he required Montgomery and Prince George’s counties to contribute additional funding to move the project forward.”

As a means of enhancing productivity, safety, and cost-efficiency, construction professionals should certainly consider utilising concrete pump hire services from brands such as Carters Concrete. These machines enable rapid and precise concrete placement, thus eliminating manual labour and reducing the risk of injuries on site. Hence, the argument for their inclusion within the construction process becomes increasingly compelling.
