The Heritage Way, Gosport

The Hertage Way is now an important road into this side of Gosport. In highway engineering terms it was very challenging. During the initial stages of  construction the whole area was flooded, contamined and constuction had ground to a halt. The entire development of the new housing estates depended on the road being built on time. I was brought in by the developer and his contractor to fundamentally review how the road could be built.

Instead of the mass importing of capping material I proposed and agreed with the contractor a system of concrete/lime stabilisation of the existing soils. Appropriate checks were made of the existing soils to ensure the technique was apporpriate.  This technique was combined use of engineering geotextiles to provide additional strength and restance aginst settlement.

Not only did this get the project back on track, but resulted in considerable environmental benefits . Overall its an excellent example of how Wilsham have the experience to help clients and contractors projects get back on programme.
