STOUR BRIDGE SCOUR PROTECTION

Client: Network Rail

Contractor: Dyer and Butler

Duration: July 2012 / 10 Weeks

Date posted: 10-07-2012

Due to the fast flowing river, Network Rail required some scour protection around the piers. A survey was carried out and Aquatic Engineering designed a containment curtain to encapsulate the works. This involved a site survey, the installation and build of a temporary wall made from one tonne shingle bags, chain sawing some old piles, dredging, drilling the pier and installing stainless eye bolts, setting out and filling the grout bags with underwater cement.

"Throughout working on the railway for the last 8 years, I have come across hundreds of small to medium size sub-contract organisations. The majority have been to a reasonable standard. I have to say the organisation that you run and operate is exemplary from the management, right down to the operatives.

"I also look forward to working with MMC on future projects. I will gladly recommend MMC to other major construction companies when attending safety forums."
