Waikato River Bank
This project included significant stabilisation of slipped and unstable portion of the western Waikato riverbank next to the city side abutment of Claudland’s Bridge and Bryce St. The works were required to stabilise and upgrade the existing walkway and track along the top of the bank following the river. The original contract work consisted of 1100m soil nails into the sandy soils of the bank to the north.
Working closely with our client Schick Construction, HCC and the engineers the project was delivered well ahead of program meeting all environmental goals and as a result the project team were awarded an additional two packages. This included another 750m of soil nails in the south and 350m soil nails under the bridge to stabilize a much large portion of the river bank with the project winning an award.
