THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TRACKS

The co-operation of two piling specialists on the site of connecting viaducts on the Stormy Down to Groes section (stage 1) of the M4 is described. This labour intensive method has had to be used following a British Rail stipulation made because the piling work is sited alongside the main South Wales railway line. Two kinds of construction have been used on each side of the track. On the south side high slump concrete using sea dredged aggregate has been used for the 544 bored piles. On the northern side 900 shell piles have been driven to depths of 6M. /TRRL/
