We are proud to have taken home the trophy for Ground Engineering Magazine’s Digital Innovation Award for our joint entry with Network Rail, recognising the fantastic work that has been done on the large-scale rollout of intelligent monitoring of earthworks.
With the challenge of extreme weather events causing a growing number of dangerous and disruptive slope failures, Network Rail engineers have lead the way in large scale wireless monitoring of earthworks to provide automated warning of ground movement.
The system has proved its value at a number of sites including warning of a landslip at the approach to Wadhurst Tunnel in Kent following heavy rainfall. In such cases, alerts are sent to stakeholders including train controllers so that trains can be slowed or stopped until the line is cleared.
