DAP Retaining Wall works near Barrow-in-Furness included the installation of 14,000 tonnes of material from the nearby Goldmire Quarry to create a new rail embankment to replace a failed retaining wall.
During a 6-week blockade of the DAP line. The stone was loaded into RRV trailers North of the site from the quarry by a conveyor and transported on average 800 tonnes of stone per day to the worksite.
The stone was then placed and graded by plant at the worksite to create the new embankment which to the delight of the structure’s asset engineer for Network Rail, removed the failed asset from the maintenance regime in this area. Network Rail awarded the safety banner for high standards on site.
