Soilfix carried out remediation of a former landfill in preparation for the construction of a Spine Road and new housing development
A parcel of land approximately 1.1 hectare in West Sussex was the site of a Council Landfill operating in the 1970s and 1980s. The adjacent proposed 3,600-unit ’Northern Arc’ residential development required the construction of a Spine Road across the landfill area. Soilfix were tasked with remediating and re-engineering the ground to make it chemically and geotechnically suitable for construction of the Spine Road together with footpath/cycleway, swales, sport pitch and children’s play areas.
Soilfix designed and implemented the following remedial / re-engineering solutions:
Soilfix successfully completed site works with no lost time accidents, facilitating the future construction of infrastructure serving the residential housing development on programme.
Over 15,000m3 of soils containing landfill waste were generated, of which, >99% reuse of the soil was achieved.
