Chris Eccles, TerraConsult Ltd will give a presentation focussing on geotechnical considerations required for the design of the HS2 railway line through the Cheshire Salt District. Due to the particular material and geological conditions caused by the presence of rock salt there are a range of additional design and risk situations which have to be taken into account for the project in Cheshire which are not applicable in other geological strata.
About 20 km of Phase 2b of HS2 passes through the Cheshire Salt District. The rural area is on first appearance open countryside. However, the farmland overlies ground with a range of both man-made and geological hazards which are not present along other sections of HS2. This talk will consider an area of the scheme with ground conditions that HS2's Lead Geotechnical Engineer has described as 'spicy'.
