Soil Stabilisation in Oakleigh South Vehicle Depot, London


Barnet Council worked with Wilmot Dixon to develop a depot providing facilities for Barnet’s waste collection

A new waste collection service was being offered and a new depot was to be constructed to achieve this. Macgrid EG40S was used in the pavement reinforcement project in London.

Barnet Council is working with its appointed contractor, Willmott Dixon, to develop the Oakleigh Road South Vehicle depot (the former Abbots Depot site).

The Oakleigh Road South Vehicle Depot will provide a range of facilities for Barnet’s waste collection service.

Alongside parking facilities for refuse and recycling collection vehicles, the new depot will house a vehicle maintenance building and cleaning bay, refuelling facilities and a covered bulking facility allowing recyclables to be put into larger vehicles for processing outside the borough.

The road make-up at the site entrance/junction off Oakleigh Road South needed to be modified.

To allow the Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) operations and accommodate the heavy loadings that affect the pavement structure, the use of a geogrid was considered.

The general site CBR was 3%, but with weak areas of CBR 1%. A reinforced pavement structure was then designed.
