News: Skanska Technology

Skanska Technology has won the contract from Railtrack to solve its problems on the Strood Tunnel in Kent which suffered a series of collapses last year. A project to strengthen the 160 year old tunnel in chalk was followed by a series of failures which closed the railway line last summer and temporarily forced the evacuation of nearby residents. A Railtrack spokeswoman said that the cause of the collapses remained a mystery and that Skanska would be looking at all options for a solution. Tenders for the construction contract are expected to be finalised in late summer with construction work to begin in the autumn.
