Description




Reinforced Earth and Costain invite you to a half day to see the largest covered arch in the UK, the longest length of Reinforced Earth Walls in the UK and the complex geo-technical structures on the A465 Heads of the Valleys road.

The morning will showcase the solutions that have been designed and supplied on the A465 Heads of the Valleys project alongside Costain’s show piece of construction engineering. A coach tour of the A465 Clydach Gorge working site will be organised.

Lunch will be provided and an excellent talk from our guest speaker Prof Peter Styles BA(Oxon), PhD, FGS CGeol, FRAS CSci, FIMMM on How Geology and Geography have defined this landscape.

An optional tour of the Big Pit after lunch is available for those interested on the day.
