A 300mm existing sewer had collapsed under a dual carriageway, causing flooding as well as settlement to road surface.
Due to poor ground conditions (peat and running sand) an open cut sewer renewal was not feasible.
A guided auger bore was to be undertaken.
JMK worked in partnership with Trenchless Solutions.
Scope of works
JMK constructed 7 metre deep drive and reception pits complete with thrust walls.
Upon completion of pipework and manholes we had to reinstate the carriageway.
The road was RC concrete with a flexible road construction overlay.
JMK worked within a road closure and a stringent 7 week programme.
JMK/Amey worked together and updated residents and local businesses daily in order to minimise disruption.
