Construction is nearly complete at the site along the A26 Antrim to Ballymena dual carriageway
We designed and supplied our Green Terramesh and MacWall Vertica 4° reinforced soil systems to overcome level differences of up to 8m to the side and rear of the site.
The brief was to provide two solutions that were aesthetically pleasing and in keeping with the surrounding countryside, yet fast and easily installed.
Green Terramesh is a unique reinforced soil system which provides a vegetated steep 70° slope finish. It is used where a more environmentally sympathetic natural solution is required by planners.
Other environmental benefits included the reuse of material from the site for structural backfill, thereby negating the need for importing structural backfill, or exporting waste soil from site.
The service station is set to create 60 new jobs making it a good addition to the A26 and surrounding areas. The forecourt is owned by a family and convenience retailer with a £3.75 million investment. The motorway service station will provide fresh food from leading franchises making it a one-stop-shop for these necessities.
