The population growth in the Kent region required environmental improvement schemes to make sure the future population growth of the county can be accommodated. One of these schemes was “Northfleet Growth”.
Part of this plan was the construction of a new sewer pipeline from Swanscombe to Northfleet WwTW through a built up area. Inevitably, the pipeline crossed many busy roads. One of these, Stonebridge Road, proved problematic for obtaining a road closure; therefore a trenchless solution was designed and developed for the pipe installation.
