Caldew Retaining Wall
We were contracted to mitigate the risk of the already unstable bank alongside the railway track. The wall collapsed due to a combination of erosion, poor drainage and undercutting from the river current.
Firstly, we had to gain access to the slope so that trial pits could be formed to determine the extent of the slope failure. This was undertaken by lowering excavators down the slope face, which were anchored back via a winch from the slope crest.
