Soil nailing is expected to be completed by mid-September

The slope stabilisation deal was awarded to Aarsleff by the main contractor on the scheme, BNM Alliance, which is a joint venture of Barhale and North Midland Construction.

The soil nailing will stabilise slopes around the launch site of a tunnel boring machine, which BNM is using to construct offline replacement tunnels for the Elan Valley Aqueduct. The aqueduct was completed at the start of the 20th century to supply drinking water to Birmingham and three sections on the gravity fed structure are being replaced by BNM.

Installation of the 670 10mm diameter soil nails has already got underway and is expected to be completed by mid-September.
