Collaboration and prompt decision making led to efficient mobilisation and controlled the programme impact.

Issue

Located just south of Hertford the 50m long retaining wall was constructed in 1983 to support Brickendon Lane road next to a local stream.

Following 2012 inspections, cracks on the adjacent carriageway indicated the wall was failing and needed replacement.

With the retaining wall hard up against the road edge and immediately adjacent to the watercourse a creative piling solution was required to prevent failure of the road during construction.
