Holme Embankment Stabilisation

Embakment re grade.


Following on from a scheduled site inspection it was established that the current timber retaining wall was in a state of distress and required urgent remedial works, following further discussion an embankment re grade was established as the most viable option.

Project Summary

The proposed works are to remove the existing retaining wall and undertake the required slope regrade works as in accordance with the Network Rails Form 3 and standard details.

  • A complex earthworks contract due to the restricted access and tight working environment in which all works were successfully completed safely, ahead of programme and within budget.
  • Site clearance, de-vegetation, excavation and removal of timber retaining wall and soil nails.
  • Installation of stone, geotextile membrane and top soil in accordance with Network Rails standard details 230 / 231.
  • Stanchion & track monitoring.
