We were appointed by Aone+ to undertake emergency embankment stabilisation works to an 80m stretch of motorway, supporting the M45 in Warwickshire.

Emergency works were required following a sustained period of rainfall which caused the embankment to slip over a metre.

Due to access restrictions and limited stable areas to provide welfare facilities, one lane was closed and speed restriction put into place to ensure a safe working environment.

We conducted emergency woodland clearance, followed by excavation of over 2500m³ of slip material.

Extensive amounts of Geotextile material was utilised to provide a stable sub-base and 3500m³ of imported material topped and enhanced the new embankment.

All works were completed by our directly employed, highly trained personnel over 21 weeks; working on a rotational basis, 24 hours a day to minimise time on site and subsequent impact of our works on road users.

Throughout scheme delivery, our teams worked in a safe, efficient manner and to a high quality standard to ensure right first time, every time delivery.
