Network Rail engineers have resolved ongoing slope stability problems on the Chiltern main line in Buckinghamshire ending long term track tamping maintenance at the site.

Steel sheet piles driven to depths of 6m using a Giken silent piling machine were used to create a retaining wall and the rail embankment has been rebuilt using 27,000t of aggregates.

In total 865 steel sheet piles were installed on either side of a bridge at Bridge Farm near Aylesbury during the three month scheme.

“By using this piling method we got the job done quicker and cheaper than traditional kit would have allowed,” said Network Rail London and North Western route works delivery manager Mark Evans.
