VHE: Temporary Bridge

vhe logo



Surefoot provided the foundation solution for a 22m temporary bridge crossing over the river Soar  in Aylestone, Leicester. The bridge was needed for heavy machinery to cross in the decommissioning of  British gas storage tanks. 14 x SF500 plates were installed 1m below ground and formed the base for a compacted earth beam. The combination of the Surefoot plates and earth beam provided the necesary abutment for the heavy plant that will be making the crossing. The Surefoot solution was installed in 3 days.
