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.
Cost per metre
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.
