Sheffield road repaired after landslip

Contractor Van Elle last week completed a contiguous piled wall repair to the A61 in Sheffield.

The road subsided in a landslip during last summer's floods after the embankment became waterlogged, causing a 100mm crack in the centre of the carriageway.

Under the £150,000 solution to buttress the road, 450mm diameter continuous flight auger (CFA) piles were installed between 8m and 11m below the road.

Restricted working conditions alongside a live carriageway required a rig small enough to work safely while being able to handling 450mm piles.
