The site is being redeveloped to a high quality residential development by Crest Nicholson. Historically it included a council waste tip which had been formed on the side of a steep hill overlooking Cardiff Bay. The landfill comprised significant quantities of ash, bottles, metal, plastic, asbestos and reworked soils. It presented significant stability issues to both the proposed development and an adoptable road.
Construction of the residential development was nearing its final stages which significantly reduced the area available to work on the landfill. Historically, there had also been extensive infestations of Japanese Knotweed on the landfill area. These had been treated during initial development works but rhizome and active plants were still known to be present meaning any earthworks needed to be tightly controlled to minimize the risk of spreading infestation to other parts of the site.
Soilfix implemented a remediation scheme to stabilise the embankment which included:
All works were successfully completed to enable commencement of highway works on-programme with site specific geotechnical requirements met.
