CC installed for London Thameslink project

30 September 2019

 

A number of rail-side slope sections in South London were protected with CC to provide weed suppression in May 2018.

The aim of the project was to eliminate maintenance requirements for these areas in order to protect the existing and newly installed signalling infrastructure from potential damage associated with the cutting of surrounding vegetation.

Due to their proximity to the tracks, access was restricted. While it would have been possible to transport alternatives to site via the tracks, the 5mm variation of CC used (CC5™) was able to replace 100mm of poured concrete, resulting in a significant material saving. In turn, costs and time were also saved.
