As part of Network Rail’s Control Period 6 (CP6), in the South East Region, a number of possessions originally planned for 2021 for track drainage works were brought forward to April-July this year – including Horsham, Southborough, Hanson Yard, Mark Beech Tunnel, Selling and Crawley to Horsham. In total, more than 1,300m of Demco TerraDrain has been supplied during this period.

Demco was able to quickly respond and supply its TerraDrain pipe system to the contractors as needed, thanks to large stock and a UK in-House manufacturing facility. Working closely with UKDN Waterflow Ltd & Onsite Central Ltd, Demco helped ensure all these time-critical projects were delivered on schedule.

“We are proud to have played a part in these vital projects, particularly given the difficulties the COVID-19 pandemic caused. It is a credit to all our staff that it was business as normal,” said Division Manager Dave Bland.

The CP6 Delivery Plan for the South East Route is designed to improve the network for passengers and freight customers, covering the time period from April 2019 to March 2024. It has involved the setting out of funding requirements for operations, maintenance and renewals activities, and sharing the predicted outputs and outcomes this will deliver.

One of Scotland’s top construction companies and civil engineering contractors have taken delivery of a Pagani Geotechnical TG63-150 machine.

Akela Construction is using the Pagani rig to carry out CPTu profiling and sampling for site investigation prior to major housing developments.

“It means Akela can carry out their own tests as and when they need on different parts of a site and get accurate information immediately,” explained MGS Technical Sales Engineer Chris White.

Chris delivered the rig to Glasgow-based Akela before Christmas and provided three days of training. “It went really well. The Pagani is intuitive to use and offers a complete package for getting good quality data quickly and simply. It is easy to manoeuvre which makes it possible to carry out tests and sampling on different areas of a plot which saves time and increases efficiency for Akela’s design and build projects,” added Chris.

“It helps us continue to deliver our projects on time, on budget and exceeding customer expectations. With this approach, we build long-term client relationships resulting in repeat business,” said a spokesman for Akela.

MGS Technical Sales Engineer Chris White gives a demo using the MGS-sponsored  Pagani TG 63-150 rig. The session was part of a training course on Cone Penetration Testing at Brunel University, London. The rig is permanently sited there for use in training and demonstrations. Chris showed CPTu testing and Seismic CPT tests using the Pagani seismic module.
