Cycling underpass Sint-Lievenpoort in Ghent
GSNED has accepted the assignment from Artes Depret nv from Zeebrugge to carry out additional geotechnical soil investigation for the project "Cycling underpass Sint-Lievenpoort (R40 Sint-Lievenslaan) in Ghent". For this, 2 verification CPTs were carried out with the measurement of cone resistance and local adhesive. These inspections had to be carried out on the water under an existing bridge, which made the movement space extra tight and the challenge extra high. We used pontoons with a crawler crane and mounted our 20-ton CPT platform on it. Through casing tubes, which we placed next to the piles, we could be sure that the CPT rods would not bend.
