Case Study: Leasowe Road, Wallasey

✔ Summer 2014

✔ Value: £300k

✔ Leasowe Road – Wallasey


A 300mm existing sewer had collapsed under a dual carriageway, causing flooding as well as settlement to road surface.

Due to poor ground conditions (peat and running sand) an open cut sewer renewal was not feasible.

A guided auger bore was to be undertaken.

JMK worked in partnership with Trenchless Solutions.

Scope of works

JMK constructed 7 metre deep drive and reception pits complete with thrust walls.

Upon completion of pipework and manholes we had to reinstate the carriageway.

The road was RC concrete with a flexible road construction overlay.

JMK worked within a road closure and a stringent 7 week programme.

JMK/Amey worked together and updated residents and local businesses daily in order to minimise disruption.
