Masonry arch culvert below west coast mainline lined with CC

04 March 2019

In November 2018, Concrete Canvas® (CC) GCCM was specified for use as a culvert lining solution. The culvert is situated below the west coast mainline, owned by Network Rail, near Southwaite in Cumbria.

While the culvert was in a fair condition prior to the works, it was a masonry structure which had become overgrown with weeds and was in need of a lining solution to prevent erosion of the masonry floor and walls, and prolong its working life.

CC was chosen due to its ease of install, use and transportation on site. The limited site access meant any materials had to be transported down a muddy slope via wheelbarrows or trolleys.
