UK: Story Contracting has awarded Geobear a contract to undertake repairs to the lining of Shugborough Tunnel on the Trent Valley Line, including filling eight hidden shafts with specialist geopolymer.

This aims to mitigate risks associated with the hidden shafts, including dynamic loading on the tunnel lining due to internal collapse of voids and ground instability.

The works will be undertaken during 29 Saturday night possessions and two weeks of mid-week working.

‘The award of this contract to Geobear is a significant step forward in the growth of the rail business in the infrastructure sector’, said Geobear’s Rail Director Ashley Gierth.
