NewsVacuum Excavation under Eltham Bridge

12 August 2013by support

Pressure Works specially designed hydro excavation trucks are suitable for a range of excavation, service proving and location, and deep vacuum excavation and are capable of clearing a cased pile hole with a lift of up to 20 m.

Manager Nick Allin is highly cognisant of the need to protect workers from water jet injury, and the use of appropriate PPE.

Eltham Bridge Cased Pile Hole Clean-Out

Pressure Works recently completed an upgrade for a bridge construction contractor involving a cased pile hole clean-out below a river bed located at Wattletree Road at Eltham Bridge. Vacuum excavation was needed because the cased pile holes were rock-drilled below riverbed and needed to be cleaned of slurry and water prior to the concrete being poured. Pressure Works’ 6 inch vacuum was able to educt the debris and water quicker than it was coming in the hole, allowing the concrete to be poured and approved by the geotechnical engineers.
