Quay walls and outer harbours in Sint-Baafs-Vijve

These works formed part of the project to construct a new lock in Sint-Baafs-Vijve.

Herbosch-Kiere was responsible for the construction of outer harbour for the Vb lock on the left bank of the Lys in Sint-Baafs-Vijve and the construction of a 1.7-km quay wall and bank defence in the industrial zone on the right bank of the Lys upstream of the current Va lock. We also carried out foundation works, namely jet grout piles for connecting to the existing structure (total number of IRS anchors: 600).

The continuous operation of the lock was guaranteed throughout the duration of the works.
