Grout Plant for Headwall Construction Why a grout plant at Chaplin? Headwalls for Chaplin required Gilgorm adjacent to work site Gilgorm to remain open one lane northbound Allows efficient use of space Other options examined included Vesta Drive and Eglinton Gilgorm preferred because of: reduced property impact reduced footprint on Eglinton Ave. 16
Grout Plant at Chaplin The site will be situated on Metrolinxowned property and occupy City of Toronto roadway A fence will enclose the site to demarcate the site from the public roadway throughout the entire works The plant will service headwall construction for Chaplin Station and cross-passages at Vesta Dr and Castle Knock Road The site is expected to be in place for approximately 8-10 months 17
Grout Plant at Chaplin Advantages of jet grout technique for headwall installation: Reduce requirement for extensive utility relocation Overall construction time savings 18
