Striking camp

McNicholas Construction re-routed part of a new relief sewer in Shropshire this April to accommodate Roman remains unearthed during open cut excavation across a field.

The 525mm concrete drain pipe was successfully re-routed around the Roman camp which contained a smelting oven and pottery kilns dating back to the 3rd century.

Pipejacking was used to tunnel underneath a road and a railway, and Portadams were used to enable open cut trenching to cross two rivers.
