Railway embankment on the East Coast Main Line suffering from continuous deformation. This was earmarked by Network Rail for a massive ground improvement project in the form of jet grouting.

  • Our role included:
  • Independent review of the site to establish the root cause of the issue.
  • Site drainage deficiencies leading to surface water washing into the embankment causing the deformation issues.
  • Prepared option study and discussed with Network Rail.
  • Our alterative design targeted site drainage improvements.
  • This achieved significant cost saving for Network Rail plus safer and quicker project delivery.
