Retaining wall Horster Damm
The Horster Damm road, in the East of Hamburg, required technical protection to its embankment down to the adjacent waterway because the carriageway had been damaged by settlement and the stability of the carriageway could no longer be guaranteed.
For reasons of the restricted local situation at the waterway a supporting wall of around 250 m in length was constructed as slope protection in the affected area. The existing bridges needed reconstruction to provide connections for the residents. The location of the construction site in water conservation area also required consideration.
Intensive negotiations were carried out with the affected residents before implementation so that the necessary permits and consents could be acquired as soon as possible. Engineering services included planning work, drawing up and acquiring the permits and consents, static calculations in addition to drawing up the implementation and bid documents.
