Earthworks

PDF Print

Modification of slopes is only really practical by using machinery, and you will need to give careful consideration to the scale of earthworks that are appropriate within the context of your path and the landscape. In some landscapes relatively large scale works could be acceptable, but in areas of open or sensitive landscapes it may not be possible to undertake major earthworks. Where you are dealing with cross slopes or gradients along the length of the path (longitudinal slopes), some earthworks will be necessary.
