Lamington Viaduct emergency works

About this event

In the aftermath of Storm Frank in late 2015 Lamington Viaduct experienced severe scour as a result of the highest ever recorded water levels in the River Clyde. The scour left the structure on the brink of collapse, with the potential for a year-long closure of the strategically important West Coast Mainline railway to replace the viaduct.

The presentation, as part of the Scottish Geotechnical Group’s series of lectures, will outline the emergency response to the problems, the challenges faced by the team to safely rescue the structure from collapse, the design and construction of the repairs to the structure, and the many issues which had to be overcome during the seven week period before the line was reopened.

Registration from 5.30pm for a 6.00pm start.
