Keeping the railways going: the effect of landslips on the rail network

Friday 22 February 2019.

With Clare Brint, Network Rail

A 25 m deep cutting slope at Farnley Haugh suffered a significant failure on 7 January 2016 resulting in the closure of the Newcastle to Carlisle Line between Hexham and Prudhoe for just over a month.  This talk will examine the remediation of this and other historic slips across the North, and how Network Rail ensures the railway operates safely and reliably.
