Rail works have become an increasingly large part of our workload, particulary now that we have a Specialist Contracting capability.

In helping to re-model railways across the UK we have been met with some unusual challenges both in terms of the erosion problems themselves and the attendant access and safe working method issues.

No longer the preserve of the ecologically important or aesthetically worthy schemes, our innovative erosion control techniques, such as our Rock Mattresses and VMax3 Shear Stress Turf, have found increasing traction in the Rail arena-see below for a montage of images of our recent Railways solutions.
