Friday Night Retaining Wall, Delph...

The site known as Friday Night Retaining Wall is situated on the A6052 in Delph near Oldham, the existing retaining wall was in a poor state of repair and was to be rebuilt. We were awarded the contract for the design of a temporary king post retaining wall, which was to serve as a temporary retaining structure during the demolition and rebuilding of the permanent highway retaining wall.

Due to the retained height along parts of the wall it was required to use tie back anchors (installed into the Millstone Grit) and a waling beam to spread the anchor forces into the king posts. We provided the complete design package for the temporary works including the anchors and timber sections.
