Strategic Pipeline Access Points

Project: Strategic Pipeline Alliance Water Pipeline Etton to Bexwell Access Points

Client: Anglian Water

DMJ was awarded a package of works to install 16 access points. The access points were to connect to the existing highway and facilitate the delivery of pipeline materials to various locations

Issue

The existing underground services were located, exposed and protected as part of the safe working practices. Foundation levels were then obtained and infilled with highway specification materials in compacted layers. The local council specified that the access points should be finished with a concrete slab, which would be time-consuming to remove and recycle.

Solution

As part of the original design, a base layer of mesh was to be installed.
DMJ’s design team proposed an alternative method to the client. Rather than having a steel mesh, DMJ recommended that fibre-based concrete be used, which would be quicker to remove and recycle. DMJ also erected post and rail fencing and steel gates to ensure the site’s security.
