Network Rail appointed J. Murphy & Sons to carry out emergency works to the embankment at Ingatestone during the weekend on the Great Eastern Main Line owing to damage that has closed one of the lines.
J. Murphy & Sons, a company highly experienced in rail emergency works, instructed Murphy Geospatial to undertake urgent monitoring works. J. Murphy & Sons and Murphy Geospatial have extensive experience working together in this type of works.
Within the same day, Murphy Geospatial deployed a monitoring team to install a manual monitoring network and started to plan and develop the installation of an Automated Total Station system to carry out continuous monitoring during the emergency works.
Murphy Geospatial carried out 24/7 manual monitoring works whilst the necessary infrastructure for the ATS system was prepared onsite.
Once the system was installed, a team from Murphy Geospatial oversaw the data collection and issued reports every 4 hours, 7 days a week, until the works were completed and the track showed no further movement.
Our experienced team of monitoring technicians, led by our Project Manager, Sam Narh, and our Monitoring Operations Manager, Reese Dawber, ensure that the tracks were monitored, either in a manual or automated manner, during the entire duration of the works, and both Network Rail and J. Murphy & Sons were timely informed about the monitoring results.
The proposed solution provided geospatial certainty to our client, allowing the emergency works to be carried out with the assurance and confidence that the works were not affecting the integrity of the railway.
