SITE VISIT IN ARMATHWAITE

Feb 28, 2017

Staff from the ByrneLooby Manchester office recently undertook a site visit to inspect repair works to a failed section of railway in Armathwaite, Cumbria.

The permanent repair measures were designed by ByrneLooby and comprise infilling of the underpass with foam concrete and a major slope regrade. Due to problems acquiring the land occupied by the underpass, significant temporary works (propped double king post wall with a maximum height of 6.5m) have also been required to allow the regrade to take place.
