Platipus Present Technical Webinar on RAIL EARTHWORKS: Stabilising Infrastructure Slopes & Retaining Structures using Ground Anchors (18th FEB)

Most rail infrastructure is in excess of 150 years old and does not offer comparable levels of resilience to modern engineered solutions. Ever increasing extreme weather events has also put heightened strain on Britain’s historic railway.

This webinar on 18th February (11am) is aimed at engineers, designers and contractors and will provide a practical insight on how Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®) can be used on a range of temporary or permanent rail applications from erosion control and slope stabilisation through to retention of sheet piles, bridge abutments and wing walls.

Platipus will also demonstrate its unique patented minimally intrusive Plati-Drain® System and how it can be incorporated to manage pore water within slopes and hydrostatic pressure behind retaining structures.


Illustrated by relevant case studies and engaging animations, the company’s experts will guide you through this interesting topic which will be followed by an interactive Q&A session. Register now to reserve your free place:
