UBC66A circles


CLIENT: Irish Rail
DATE: Oct 2021
LOCATION: Dublin to Cork Railway Line near Newbridge Train Station, Co Kildare

The objective of the project was to install new concrete headwall sections of a culvert on the railway line named UBC66A, including excavation, over pumping, backfilling and forming a small section of reinforced concrete.

Global Rail Services was appointed Main Contractor and PSCS for these works. The works were completed under full night time track possessions and one weekend shutdown of the rail line.  

Vegetation and trees around the site and lay down areas were removed prior to works commencing.  The existing sheet piles were removed and excavations carried out for installation of the headwall and in-situ culvert connection.  

Pumps were put in place for rerouting the water handled by UBC66A, diverting the flow across the railway line to the east side of the culvert.  The pumps ran 24/7 to accommodate the flow of water.  Pipes were placed under the track during night works.
