Secugrid® – Bridging of mining voids at Day-Care Centre “Albrecht-Dürer-Straße” – Germany

The new day-care centre “Albrecht-Dürer-Strasse” in Halle (Saale), Germany will provide room for 200 kids and is part of a municipal investment programme. The site is located on the edge of a 150-year-old mine. A special underground mining technique called “room and pillar caving” was used to extract brown coal. This method does not fill the created cavities after extraction of the coal. As a result, the overlying rock layers settle after the mining operations and fill the cavities. It can, however, not be precluded that residual cavities may cause subsidence at the surface of the terrain. Based on these findings, safety measures had to be taken in the area of the open space of the day-care centre.
