The Permanent Way Institution has presented retired rail engineer Douglas Ayres with its Gold Award and a cheque for £500 for his paper entitled “The Stabilisation of Slips in Cuttings and Embankments by Means of Cationic Base Exchange”. The annual award celebrates the best paper published in the institution’s quarterly journal in the last 12 months. Ayres told GE that the paper was based on his work on earthworks during his career with British Rail between 1966 and 1989.

GE hopes to publish Ayres’ winning paper in the September issue of the magazine.
