Northpoint lead Intrusive Investigation Stockton – to facilitate part of a £470M improvement scheme including the proposed Portrack Relief Road in Stockton-on-Tees.
Intrusive Investigation Stockton – The Tees Combined Local Authority called on Northpoint to manage the Portrack Relief Road intrusive ground investigation.
The scheme is part of multiple projects Northpoint are investigating in collaboration with the local authorities throughout the Tees Valley.
The wider development will include a new highway between the A1046 and the Portrack Interchange down onto Newport Bridge. The scheme is complex considering routes beneath the A19 Tees Flyover.
The Intrusive Investigation Stockton comprised a number of targeted exploratory positions to assess the ground and groundwater conditions through into bedrock.
Due to the numerous former brownfield uses, particularly to the west, variable and complex ground conditions were encountered.
On this project, Northpoint collaborated with several parties, including the Council, INCA, Geocore, Arup, TM Ward, Landform Surveys and 360 Mapping.
