Construction plant working to repair the road at Soot Hill, Northwich, Cheshire

Kilkern to ease Northwich road bottleneck

4th May 2023

Kilkern has been appointed to carry out remediation work on the Soot Hill road in Northwich, Cheshire.

The carriageway was damaged when a landslide caused the collapse of a retaining wall dating back to the 1800s. Kilkern’s £1.2m programme will include stabilisation works, the installation of a new king post-piled retaining wall with sandstone cladding plus the provision of a new surface water drainage system, kerbing and footpaths.

Kilkern’s Patrick Rodgers said that the contract award followed an intense period of ground investigation works and scheme design.

“This is a complex project which will require a high degree of technical accuracy and we are delighted to have been selected,” he said. “When complete the works will remove a significant bottleneck for road users.”

Main contractor Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering Ltd appointed Kilkern on behalf of the client Cheshire West & Chester Borough Council through the SCAPE framework. Completion of Kilkern’s programme is expected in November 2023.
