    Canal tunnels, slab track installation (Amberg/LVT/Rhomberg)

    Project Details

    Canal Tunnels was part of the Thameslink programme, where the scope was to fit out the 2 650mtr tunnel bores that went below St Pancras station and surfaced in York Way, North of Kings Cross Station. The new connection would then link the Thameslink network to the East Coast Main Line.

    We were the lead Engineers supporting the principal contractor (Carillion Rail) and were responsible for the following:

    • Simulating tunnel conditions with a test track for perfecting best practices
    • Installation and management of the survey control network
    • Design data preparation and development with designers
    • Logistics planning and programming
    • Setting out using the latest in track trolley technologies (Amberg GRP 3000)
    • Utilisation of Rhomberg’s track support systems
    • Quality assurance and development of inspection and test plan procedures
    • Over 1500 mtrs of new slab track was installed including a DV crossover. All track was installed within NR tolerance limits first time, on time and under budget
