The roads formation was compacted using a sheepsfoot roller that is particularly effective in the clay soil we encountered at Banbury.

The formation is also receiving a terram membrane to further stabilise this difficult ground; followed by a road construction using locally sourced quarried stone.

MV Kelly have secured both the infrastructure and housing from all three developers on this site.

Thrust Boring and Canal Crossings

The Canal Water flowing from the deteriorated canal linings and the ground water generally in the area required MV Kelly to utilise a caisson to be sunk adjacent to the canal to act a temporary working area for the thrust boring equipment. By sinking a caisson shaft MV Kelly were able to safely complete this complicated crossing.
