Thomas Armstrong (Construciton) Ltd had to develop some initial designs that were put together by CCC, to full design and build status.
The two main packages were the stabilisation of a slope at Grisedale Lane near Patterdale using rock armour to prevent future erosion by the river and secure the integrity of the road above.
In the same area, at Hartsop, we undertook concrete underpinning to a stone wall within a river that had been undermined and washed out during the flooding, to prevent future wall and road collapse. Other works included road and drainage improvement works at Mungrisedale, Warcop and Bampton to Burnbanks.
The reprofiling of a riverbank at Warcop that had collapsed, including the installation of rock rolls and willow planting to stabilise the new slope.
