NEARLY 4,500 CMCs 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 currently under 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 (CMCs).
