Crossrail is due for completion in winter 2020, approval for the HS2 project has been granted, and Northern Powerhouse Rail promises to enhance the UK’s economic potential. This infrastructure is deemed an essential social, economic catalyst and one of the biggest civil engineering projects within the UK.
The British have earned a reputation for building railways and civil engineering expertise. These modern developments promise shorter journey times and improved connectivity. It is hoped that they will reduce congestion on our roads and lower the environmental impact of travel. They should also help the nation remain a viable and competitive trade partner after the dramas of Brexit.

Railways have long presented a challenge for civil engineers and civil engineering projects. The stability and speed of the trains are dependent on relatively straight routes through the landscape. Across the world, there are impressive examples of expansive railway bridges and mountain tunnels. These have been designed and constructed to resolve the challenges of the land.
