TRM Piles used for bridge construction in Southafrica


Earlier this year, construction works of a new deal in South Africa commenced. The project “Val de Vie Bridge” near Paarl, Western Cape presented itself as a highly demanding geotechnical pilling challenge for both, TRM and the main building contractor EMPA Structures. Due to the thick layers of alluvial gravel and cobbles, pre-drilling had to take place in order to remove obstacles and enable a successful installation of the piles. Furthermore, various tests were conducted to verify the behaviour of the material under difficult conditions.
