Gedling the water courses sorted!

Posted: Monday 20th January 2020

In preparation for the construction of the new Gedling Access Road which will bypass the Village of Gedling near Nottingham, VIA East Midlands Ltd, the commercial Highways and Infrastructure partner to Nottinghamshire County Council were tasked with diverting a number of open watercourses which lay in its path.

The Process: Given the anticipated volume of water involved, large pipe diameters and a large central chamber were proposed to manage the flow and volume.

Designers proposed that pipe diameters of 900mm and 1400mm were required, flowing into a central chamber of 2700mm diameter.

VIA East Midlands Ltd spoke to their contact at Keyline Civils and Drainage in Nottingham who recommended Stanton Bonna Concrete Ltd to provide a bespoke solution working with drawings provided.

To facilitate the large diameter pipe entries into the 2700mm chamber, a bespoke 3 part base for the chamber was created with partial apertures cut into two of the sections. This enabled site to construct the chamber before safely removing the centre section on site. This then helped retain the structural integrity of the 2700mm ring whilst at the same time allowing for multiple 1400mm and 900mm pipe entries. Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE
