CPD Webinar: Specifying LECA® Lightweight Fill within Bridge Development

About this event

CPD Webinar Overview

The ‘pull out’ resistance of LECA® Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate makes it an ideal solution for reinforced soil bridge design. Particularly when constructed over weak sub-soils or voids, this method has been proven to cut overall construction costs considerably. LECA® Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate is used extensively to reduce vertical loading.

Structures such as bridge development benefit greatly from the reduction in pressure and avoid additional costs of strengthening. Being light weight and round in nature, LECA® Lightweight Expanded Clay Aggregate can be transported and placed more easily than that of traditional fill in these difficult to access areas.

Join us for part of our LECA Geotechnical Webinar Series, where our experienced technical team will highlight key bridge development case studies and provide a thorough understanding on LECA® Lightweight fill when applied as a solution for bridge development.

Key areas for webinar:

•Full overview of why LECA® Lightweight Fill is an ideal solution for a reinforced bridge development.

•Case studies where LECA® Lightweight Fill has been applied to bridge development within the UK including the recent Preston Western Distributor Road (PWDR) project and the recent M6 integral bridge development in Wallsall.

•Highlighting the key benefits of LECA® Lightweight fill when applied as a solution for bridge development.

Q&A session with the technical team
