Highly Efficient Ballast Vacuuming at Vauxhall Station

In advance of bridge refurbishment works at Vauxhall Station, the Osborne team recently installed ballast boards with the help of a ballast vacuum.
This highly effective method for removing clean ballast is safe for use around buried services and provided access to inspect and test the existing hidden critical elements.

The two bridges, 6 and 7, support the tracks and platforms at Vauxhall Station.

The complex refurbishment scheme will include repairs, coatings and a new deck to bridge 6 and will begin next summer.
