Microtunnelling at Amlaird to Corsehouse Maining Out, Newton Mearns, Scotland. M233

Client
Scottish Water

Project
Scottish Water has identified the requirement to increase the efficiency of the network system in the vicinity of Gorbals to Amlaird Water Operational Area (WOA) through a series of mainouts.

Description

The construction of the new strategic water main, which is expected to take about four years, will connect the Bradan water supply network to the network served by the Milngavie and Balmore water treatment works, north of Glasgow. When complete, the investment will enable the transfer of water from Glasgow to Ayrshire, and vice-versa, if required. This will create a larger, more robust and connected supply zone which will benefit customers in areas such as Ayr, Prestwick, Kilmarnock, Troon, Irvine, Fenwick, Galston, Stewarton, Hurlford, Maybole, Eaglesham and Newton Mearns.

Design and construction of 4 No mechanized pipe jacks including design submissions to Network Rail and Transport Scotland to gain approval for the crossings.

Construction of two drive and two reception pits in rock.

Installation of twin DN1500 x 80m mechanised pipe jacks below the Neilston railway line using our Herrenknecht AVN TBM.

Installation of twin DN1800 x 80m mechanized pipe jacks below the M77 motorway using our Herrenknecht AVN TBM.

Movement monitoring of the M77 carriageway and surrounding features.

Ground Conditions

Glacial till over overlying strong BASALT
