Route 7 Motorway

Route 7 Motorway

The Route 7 Motorway in Kosovo was designed to create a new link from the border with Albania to Pristina. The motorway is part of the wider European Route 75, connecting the Adriatic Sea to the Pan European Corridor X in Serbia. ByrneLooby was appointed as the geotechnical consultants on Sections 7 and 8 of this €700 million design and build project.

Route 7 Motorway

Our Role

ByrneLooby was responsible for the preparation of the Geotechnical Design Report (GDR) for the scheme in addition to the planning, scoping, supervision and interpretation of phased ground investigations along this challenging route. ByrneLooby then designed the earthworks and the foundations for the motorway viaducts, bridges and culvert structures.

Our Role

Local Conditions

Inter-regional tensions still existed in post conflict Kosovo and negotiating access with land owners proved difficult during site investigations. As a result, ByrneLooby advocated the use of Cone Penetration Testing (CPT), using a light tracked vehicle that could travel rapidly on the ground with minimal disruption. This equipment was not readily available in Kosovo so ByrneLooby provided a CPT specialist in order to transfer skill, knowledge and capability to the area. This benefited our client as it enabled the project to progress more rapidly, with minimum disruption to land owners and provided all the information necessary to characterise the ground for design.
