Bauer Technologies, a subsidiary of the BAUER Group, has been awarded the piling and foundation works for Highways England’s £43 million M6 junction 19 improvement works, which forms part of a collection of schemes designed to improve connections between Cheshire and South Manchester.
The contract which was awarded by joint venture, Amey Sir Robert McAlpine, will require Bauer Technologies to install 124nr abutment CFA piles (62 per abutment), each measuring 900mm x 13m and 60nr pier rotary bored piles, each measuring 900mm x 16m, as well as 2nr preliminary test piles and 2nr working test piles. Work will be undertaken using two CFA rigs and one rotary bored rig.
Speaking about the project, Michael Jones, Managing Director of Bauer Technologies, said: “This is an ambitious scheme being undertaken for Highways England and Bauer Technologies is pleased to be contributing its technical piling expertise to the project. It is a challenging project too, with work to be undertaken immediately adjacent to live motorway and with the rotary rig required to be in the central reservation area where the bridge pier piles are to be constructed from.”
The scheme will make the network safer and improve the environment by reducing congestion and preventing queuing traffic on the M6. Road users will enjoy quicker and more reliable journeys through the junction, while pedestrians and cyclists will benefit from improved facilities linking to the A556 and local roads.
Bauer Technologies’ work on the project commences 8 June 2020, with the company expected to be on-site for 4 weeks.
