Underpinning road to ensure traffic safety

Working for the Coal Authority in the perhaps aptly named Capt. Webb Drive, in Telford, Shropshire, (wasn’t he the guy who first swam the Channel, covered in goose fat?!)

Anvil worked with main contractor Llettyshenkin Construction on a difficult project to cap and make safe a mine shaft beneath a road due to carry 44 tonne trucks.The problem was clear enough when a 40m hole opened up in the carriageway, so the thought of letting the artics. drop through that certainly concentrated the mind. Using 8 inch piles to support a cap under the road was the chosen way to proceed and, despite the very awkward working conditions, which did nor permit any access to the main mineshaft, the work was completed on time – with most of the team members having to wear fall arrest harnesses throughout the project!
