The western wall is one of 3 walls that were added to southern part of the temple plato. They are not only retaining walls but also a frame to the pillars and arches which support that part of the temple's court. In order to start the landfill, they had to build these walls first, or at least, the first few rows of stones. Herod was the builder of those.
