‘AarGroup’ Project Highlight of the Month 🌍
In May 2017, our parent company Per Aarsleff A/S in Denmark had just completed the design and build contract for a new 3.7km rail section between Copenhagen and Ringsted. The scope of the project included establishing two cut and cover tunnels and four bridges across the new rail section. Aarsleff worked closely with the client in the early stages of the project, creating a good working relationship with the Danish Road Directory and the local councils.
Aarsleff’s biggest challenge was the cut and cover tunnels, with one having to be constructed in confined space between a highway and residential development. The other tunnel went through a highly contaminated site, which required special attention whilst handling the soil on the site.
The project demonstrated Aarsleff’s wide range of capabilities and offerings, with the ground engineering works including:
- 22,000m of secant piled wall,
- 32,000m of sheet piling,
- 3,400no anchors.
