Scour protection works to 17 rail structures throughout the UK from Greater Manchester to Buckinghamshire.
Working in close collaboration with our group sister company, Amco Rail, we have delivered a portfolio of 17 scour protection works to rail structures located near rivers at various sites throughout the Midlands for Network Rail. The works involve a mixture of activities including installation of temporary dams, fish relocation, excavation of river bed silts and rubble, installation of fibre reinforced concrete fabric mattresses, placement of rock armour and gabion walls and brickwork repairs.
One of the major challenges of the projects is to maintain the water flow in the various rivers. This requires extensive coffer dams and temporary diversion works designed on a bespoke basis to overcome the challenges of each particular site. VHE has extensive expertise in water management to prevent pollution and in meeting the demands of the regulatory authorities.
