Say ALLU to South Lanarkshire’s First Deep Soil Mixed Road

16 June 2015

We are delighted to have been appointed by our client Taylor Wimpey to provide the new distributor road along with associated infrastructure at Newton Farm Phase 2. This project will create access and provide services to a number of future residential development areas as well as to a future school.

A critical element of the overall works is the mass stabilisation of the road area to allow installation of deep drainage and to meet the settlement criteria of </=25mm.

Works include:

  • Stabilisation to existing ground for new road construction
  • Installation of storm & foul drainage
  • Service installation
  • Road construction
  • Outfall to Clyde Works
  • Construction of storm water pond & swale


Allan Randall, Director of Luddon said “Thorough analysis was carried out to ascertain the best stabilisation method for the site and we are delighted that the ALLU Stabilisation System proposed by Luddon was chosen as the most cost effective and overall best technical solution. This is the first time the ALLU Mass Stabilisation Method has been utilised in South Lanarkshire so there was much excitement when the mixing plant arrived on site and when the stabilisation works commenced”.
