Project Description


An existing masonry wall retaining a busy road leading to Illfracombe, Devon had collapsed over a tract spanning 27m in length.


The main challenge for Marine & Civil Solutions was to minimise the disruption to the traffic, while maintaining optimum safety for the duration of the repair work.



To maintain the flow of traffic, we set up two-way traffic lights, giving us the space to excavate the existing wall, cast a new foundation and re-build the wall in line with Devon County Council’s specification and design.

The project was completed without a hitch – on time and on budget.
