Kilsby Tunnel

Project Details

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Network Rail realised that due to a reduced train service, a potential blockade could be secured on the West Coast Mainline covering Kilsby Tunnel to undertake the renewal of 800 yards of drainage and 870 yards of track.

PBH got the call 10 days before the blockade was due to start, requesting a full survey and design. PBH mobilised survey resource to complete the survey over one weekend night shift, processed the data and delivered to the design team within 3 days. The design team turned the design around within a week in time for the renewal to start.
