Rig lift signals start of Victoria Station Upgrade grouting milestone

Grouting to enable tunnelling work for London’s Victoria Station Upgrade below a landmark London pub has got underway after an overnight operation with road closures by Keller to lift its rigs into position.

The listed façade of the Duke of York pub has been retained while the interior has been demolished to allow the grouting work for the London Underground upgrade project to be carried out.

Keller is now working on installing jet grouted columns within the building footprint which will enable main contractor formed from a joint venture of Bam Nuttall and Taylor Woodrow to complete tunnelling work through the river terrace gravels.

Jet grouting work on the Victoria Station Upgrade is due to be completed in the middle of 2014.
