New Highway N18 between Groenlo and Enschede, Haaksbergen, The Netherlands

BAUER Funderingstechniek BV was recently contracted by Van Hattum en Blankenvoort bv., the main contractor, to design and construct soilmix cut-off walls for a new highway N18 between Groenlo and Enschede in Haaksbergen in the Netherlands. The client was Rijkswaterstaat.

Bauer installed the mixed-in-place cut-off walls with a maximum depth of 19.5m until 2m into the impermeable clay layer, creating a permanent polder construction for the uneven road crossing.
Bauer used the local ground as a construction material for the permanent cut-off walls. There was 14.500 m2 of walls, each with a maximum depth of 19.5m and a wall thickness of 0.55m.

The project began in February 2017 and was completed in May 2017.
