Track & Wall Sawing in Weymouth, Dorset

Track & Wall Sawing in Weymouth

Global warming is a much-discussed topic, especially in seaside towns. Weymouth is no exception; but the people aren’t just talking about it, they are actively planning the defence of their town from the ravages of flooding from the sea. The Weymouth Town Centre and Harbour Defence Policy has studied the best ways to protect the harbour area, town centre and Esplanade from sea and river flooding until 2094. The harbour walls and existing flood defences and sea walls will be raised and new defences put in place, including a tidal barrier at the entrance to the harbour.

When existing structures such as sea walls and flood barriers are raised, the process starts with exposing the reinforcing bars in the existing barriers. Once these are extended, the wall is raised with the pouring of new concrete. Track sawing is a technique used to cut openings in vertical surfaces. The saws run on tracks and work in horizontal and vertical planes. It is often the case that building something from scratch is easier and more effective than trying to add on. When an existing structure like a traffic barrier or flood defence wall needs to be removed, it is better to cut it into pieces large enough to be loaded onto a truck. This is preferable to smashing into pieces. A wall cut into manageable blocks is far easier to load that a pile of rubble. Track saws would be used for this operation.

Weymouth Track & Wall Sawing Case Study

Brief: 24-7 Diamond Drilling & Sawing Services Limited carried out diamond Wall Sawing works where flood control or traffic barriers were removed and replaced.

Solution: Working on the flood defences meant that we could only approach the works from the landward side. In spite of this complication, the work was completed ahead of schedule and within budget.
