About this event

The presentation will discuss the stability of end tipped clay embankments, track settlement on the peat Fens, washouts of glacial till cuttings and more recent subsidence and stability issues associated with storm surges, ash embankments, vegetation, rainfall, badgers, rabbits and other third parties. Prioritisation and cost effective earthworks interventions associated with these issues will then be discussed noting the constraints imposed by ecology, remoteness, funding limitations - and restricted access to the railway line.
