Earth bank retaining wall

Leicester city council

The highways division of Leicester City Council got in touch about a riverside retaining wall that failed on the river Sour, opposite the National Space Centre.

They needed a new low-level retaining wall that could be built quckly to make the footpaths safe to walk on.

The council’s design team had looked at several options, including a king-post wall with steels and timber sleepers – but the construction time for all options was too long.

Using the modular precast wall, we were able to reduce the wall construction time from one week – to just one day.

The M3 team reviewed the existing design and the site layout and suggested using the modular retaining wall range.

This precast wall is available in 6m lengths – longer than any other precast L-wall in the UK.
