20Jan94 UK: PILING PLEASE - NETWORK SOUTHEAST'S LONDON TO ASHFORD MAIN LINE - REMEDIAL WORK.
Remedial work is under way to repair Network SouthEast's London to Ashford main line after recent storms undermined an embankment between Tonbridge and Sevenoaks in Kent. Piling contractor Consteel is installing sheet piles to support 50 m of ash embankment, which has given way at ground level. A railway spokesman said heavy rain was to blame and that the work would be completed by the end of the month. CONSTRUCTION NEWS
