  • Creating of a new 1 hectare drainage basin including 15,000m3 earthworks cut to fill.
  • Earthworks to the existing drainage basin to create hardstand area and new hardstand drainage basin which included approx. 120,000m3 of earthworks using a combination of on site cut to fill and import fill. Works had to be undertaken with careful consideration to the private High Pressure gas line that was located with the proposed hardstand works area.

  • Install of over half a kilometre of double storey sea container noise wall filled with ballast included 20,000m3 cut to fill of clay material to widen existing batter.
