Scarborough Train Care Facility

INSTALLING A CONTIGUOUS PILED WALL TO RETAIN AN EMBANKMENT

Project Description

DATA 24no. 400mm diameter cased auger piles
MAIN CONTRACTOR Graham Construction & Network Rail
EQUIPMENT Klemm 702, Putzmeister P11 mixer
CONSTRUCTION PERIOD Dec 2018 – Jan 2019

Aarsleff Ground Engineering have completed on site installing a contiguous piled retaining wall for a new train maintenance facility in Scarborough.

The new train care facility will provide maintenance services including fuelling for trains operating to and from Scarborough.

The facility will also be able to cater for 13 new five carriage trains to be phased into service overspring 2019. These trains will provide an additional 700,000 extra seats per year for outgoing and incoming trains into Scarborough station.

An additional 15 jobs will also be created as part of the new facility.

Aarsleff were awarded the contract for the embankment stabilisation by Graham Construction, who were working in partnership with Network Rail.

The embankment required stabilisation to prevent the risk of collapsing onto the North East Coast mainline. Working closely with Network Rail and Graham Construction,Aarsleff utilised their Klemm 702 rig to install the 24no. cased auger contiguous piles.

The Klemm 702 features a compact design and a low bearing pressure, which
allowed Aarsleff to minimise the risk of the embankment collapsing whilst carrying out
the works.

The steel reinforced cages for the piles were also cut into shorterlengths than standard to prevent further risk of the embankment collapsing.

Aarsleff’s specialist rig and methodology allowed the rail line to stay operational over the Christmas period, the busiest time of the year for the railways in the UK.
