Embankment Stabilisation llanycil
When a highway embankment slope adjacent to Lake Bala in North Wales continued to suffer stability problems, even after repeated repairs. YGC, Alun Griffiths (Contractors) and Diwydag, were engaged by Welsh Government to design a solution.
The innovative solution was to install a reinforced concrete ‘king post type’ retaining wall, supported by 36 ground anchors, 12 of which were smart anchors – the use of which is the first in the UK.
