Caterpillar long-reach excavators from WM Plant Hire are working to clear slips, reprofile a slope and backfill gabion retaining structures next to the tracks on the West Coast Main Line. WM Plant said the machine's reach of almost 26m means work can be carried out safely from the top of the slope without disrupting trains and avoiding costly track possessions. The equipment can be used to install soil nails, vertical drains and ground anchors, as well as excavation and replacement of material.
