diaphragm wall/cross wall road clearance
Explanation:
diaphragm wall - a wall built transversely to the longitudinal centerline of a spandrel arch serving to tie together and reinforce the spandrel walls, together with providing a support for the floor system in conjunction with the spandrel walls; also known as cross wall

Or another possibility is slurry cutoff wall road clearance. My Langenscheidts Fachwörterbuch Technik translates Schlitzwandverfahren as slurry trenching or slurry trench cutoff wall technology

\"Recent Experience in Slurry Trench Walls \"

Abstract: Slurry trench technology has been in use in North America for control of seepage since the 1940s. The basic types of slurry cutoff walls include soil-bentonite, cement bentonite, plastic concrete, and concrete. Bentonite clay slurry is typically used to support the trench excavation. Selection of the type of wall most appropriate for a site depends on permeability requirement, site conditions, consideration of impact on adjacent structures, long term effectiveness, and costs. Slurry walls are increasingly being used for underground pollution or contaminant control at mining and industrial sites, and compatibility of the cutoff wall with the surrounding ground and groundwater is a key design consideration. The speakers will present recent experience in design and construction of various types of slurry cutoff walls, as well as the use of bio-polymer slurry for construction of a permeable wall.
