Ground investigations works were undertaken as part of the Northern Hub scheme which is a programme of targeted upgrades to the railway in the North of England. The sites were located between Liverpool and Sheffield and were completed between March and October 2012. The purpose of this investigation was to assess the ground conditions likely to be encountered during the installation of new platforms and assess the trackbed conditions for slewing and relaying of new and existing railway lines.
“Many thanks to CCGI and your crews over the weekend. Despite a few niggly “rail” type issues it all went to plan. Your lads are a credit to your company. Hopefully we can work together again in the future.”
