Clayton Waste Transfer Station

The Durahold block system was chosen for this project because of the following:

  1. The planned position of the new tip was on fill soil, thus Duraholds ability to deal with minor soil movement was seen as an advantage.
  2. The significant mass of the Durahold block give it great durability to impact from machinery.
  3. The Durahold wall can be constructed with a vertical face.
  4. A Durahold retaining wall can be constructed more quickly than most types of retaining walls on the market.
  5. The Durahold system is a segmental retaining wall. This means the system is re-locateable, so when the waste transfer station comes to the end of its life the blocks can be transported to another location and re-used.
