Ashmead Embankment, near Basingstoke

At Ashmead, near Basingstoke on the route to London, prolonged wet weather led to rail embankment failure. Network Rail restricted the speed and mobilised.

Within the first 2 days, remote track monitoring equipment was installed under possession and 3,670 tonnes of material was delivered for the haul road and piling mat. The rapidly expanding team were set up with power, data, heating and offices. In total there were over 1000 vehicle movements with the 430 HGV deliveries and staff vehicles. No mean feat from a standing start.

“Well done to everyone involved, massive effort and delivered safely. Very impressive performance.
Zen Nicholls – Network Rail
