Work at Kex Gill on the A59 is progressing well. The main area of drilling has been completed in very difficult conditions due to the location of the work site. Last week every anchor that has been installed was subject to a pull test by an independent testing company, as requested by the client.
The result of the pull test proved that every anchor has been installed correctly as per the geotechnical design.
Work is now continuing on an extension to the working area that has the possibility to movement. The extended works anchors are been installed to a depth of 12m using our Husqvarna DXR310 with a Marini drill mast.
