VEDA Associates were engaged by J Murphy to carry out the Civil and Track Design for the platform refurbishment works at Attleborough Station. VEDA provided design CRE’s for each of the disciplines, instructed the Surveys and engaged the GI contractor to determine the soil stratigraphy and the soil percolation rates.
The remaining Up line remained intact but with a 3.0m high shear face in the embankment fill emanating from the sleeper ends.
As part of the embankment stabilisation scheme to which VEDA Associates were employed by Dyer and Butler Ltd as lead designer the Up line was to be temporarily supported such that engineering vehicles could deliver materials further slip locations on the line.
A gabion wall was designed and constructed supported on the piling mat. This allow the line to reopen to engineering vehicles within 10 days.
