Nuttall wins early Christmas present with Hooley

Contractor Bam Nuttall has announced that it has won a major contract to undertake remediation work on the Hooley Cutting on the London to Brighton railway line during a Christmas track possession.

Nutall will work with its geotechnical specialist Bam Ritchies to undertake the stabilisation work on the 30m deep chalk cutting, which carries two slow lines on the busy rail route, over a nine day track closure. The cutting has a history of stability problems and the scheme has been designed to allow the stabilisation work to continue after the Christmas closure without further disrupting services.

Enabling works for the scheme involve installing 1km of temporary catch fencing and 260 linear metres of scaffold supported on piled foundations.
