Existing Embankment Stabilisation on the M6 Smart Motorway


5-Nov-2020

Our last of over 100nr walls on the M6 was an interesting one to say the least and was the result of months of collaborative design with our client Kier Group and designers Jacobs Atkins JV. The wall was required to stabilise an existing embankment which was showing signs of deterioration.

High modulus ArcelorMitatal HZM king piles, 15m in length, with 5.5m long AZ infills, were installed using one of our powerful ABI TM22s with a 36VV vibro hammer, without any requirement for impact driving.


Continuous monitoring of the embankment was carried out throughout the installation process to ensure no further deterioration.
