Work to protect a section of Cumbrian railway from flooding has been completed.
Network Rail oversaw installation of 15,000t of rock at Parton on the North West coast.
Repairs have been ongoing since storms battered sea defences in the area at the turn of the year.
Network Rail works delivery manager John Owen said: “In total we’ve put around 15,000t of the rock armour into place, which will help protect the railway for several decades to come.
“The main challenges have been the weather and access and we had to carefully plan our work around low tides so we could safely and effectively install these defences.
“The logistics were also challenging as we had to move the rock in from quarries, into a compound and then, during low tide, onto the beach. The result is a safer and more reliable railway for the people of Cumbria.”
