Embankment Ground Strengthening, Brunel Designed Bridge

SUMMARY

GPR surveys identified voiding under the entire surface of the walkway of Hiscocks Bridge in Bath resulting in settlement to embankments on the approaches. 

TECHNOLOGY USED

URETEK Geopolymer injection was used to consolidated the ground with 120 injections of geopolymer resins at 1.5m intervals, to a depth of up to 1.5m. URETEK teams also stabilized bridge abutment walling by injecting up to 3m beneath the existing foundation.

RESULT

URETEK carried out the remediation works over two weeks.
North-East Somerset Council were very please with the outcome and local walking and environmental groups were also pleased with the choice of URETEK method as it minimized disruption and impact to surrounding environment
