Tarmac has had a construction materials depot on land off Water Works Way for over 30 years. The site is close to the M40 and also connected by rail to one of the biggest quarries in the country, Mountsorrel.
The depot's location, close to the M40 and railway means the site can help provide construction materials for Banbury and the surrounding area.
Having been in operation in Banbury for so long, and with the significant investment in infrastructure in the local area, Tarmac need to improve their facilities on-site in order to meet demand

Health and safety
Our ambition is to realise continuous improvement for all our employees and contractors
This approach to improving safety extends across our supply chain and to every aspect of our business - from the way we manage sites and the way train and equip our employees and contractors - to the safety features we install in our vehicles to protect road users.
We're proud to work with experts in the field of Health and Safety, such as the British Safety Council and The Health and Safety Executive and are also one of the founding partners of a mental health programme for people working in the construction sector called Mates in Mind.
We also have a brand new National Skills and Safety Park - 'The Park' - that is home to operational onboarding, professional operational training, assessments and health and safety learning, demonstrating our commitment to building the right safety culture as well as creating an enhanced experience for employees.
