About this Project

As part of our client’s Civil Asset Maintenance (CAM) – Anglia region framework for Network Rail, WCS were asked to attend site and provide a design solution to relieve pressure on a section of existing reinforced concrete retaining wall separating the track from private homeowners’ property. 

After assisting our client with specifications for ground investigations, monitoring and intrusive surveys of the retaining wall itself, we provided a detailed design for the installation of sheet piles in a restricted site and under a tight possession.  This relieved pressure on the wall and ensured ongoing stability and facilitated the reopening of the adjacent depot Permanent Way.
