Forth Replacement Crossing, United-Kingdom

NEARLY 4,500 CONTROLLED MODULUS COLUMNS UNDER THE ROAD

Menard and its British subsidiary Vibro Menard won the contract to work on the Forth Replacement Crossing. The project, one of the United Kingdom’s largest construction, involves a road suspension bridge with a metal deck over the Firth of Forth 15 km from Edinburgh. Menard won the contract to improve the soil under the access road backfill on the northern bank. A French-British team stabilised the backfill using 4,451 Controlled Modulus Columns.
