Many railway lines and stations will undergo alterations and expansion as a result of the growth in the number of passengers, goods and trains. Our retaining walls are frequently part of these often far-reaching changes. One example is making the entrances of stations more accessible and safer, where retaining wall structures are installed for soil (or water) barriers, widening platforms, constructing a sound barrier along the track or a cycle park. We supply sustainable platform retaining walls with a low ECI value for the ProRail ‘Standardised Platforms’ project. We also sometimes provide retaining walls with a structure, or our partners can finish the retaining walls with an anti-graffiti coating, fencing or greenery.
