The Project

Reconstruction of approximately 85m of public footpath due to embankment failure in Halton, Warrington.

Works consisted of:
•    Saw cut and removal of existing road surfacing
•    Excavation and removal of existing footpath
•    Installation of sheet piling 
•    Excavation to reduced levels 
•    Construction of reinforced concrete ‘Z’ wall
•    Backfill
•    Reinstatement of gullies, kerb-line and surfacing
•    Installation of a new vehicle barrier and pedestrian guardrail

The site was very unique in a lot of aspects, which required in-depth project planning and management to ensure the project was undertaken safely, efficiently and to programme.

There was a very restricted site area, which consisted of only half a road closure. Working on top of the unstable embankment restricted the size of plant that could be employed to undertake the excavation works.

The site was also located in close proximity to a mobile home park, so proactive community liaison with these residents was crucial.
