New study for DLR extension

ATKINS HAS appointed Fugro Engineering Services to investigate the upper chalk bedrock to determine ground conditions for the Docklands Light Railway's £145m, 2.5km extension to Woolwich Arsenal in south-east London.

The two-week geotechnical investigation involves drilling five rotary cored boreholes into the river bed and geophysical logging. The route, which runs from North Woolwich to Woolwich Arsenal, will be through bored tunnels under the River Thames.

This contract supplements an earlier land-based study. Results will be available to the companies selected to tender for what is likely to be a 30-year concession to design, build, finance and maintain the extension.
