    Thames Valley Section Meeting 

    Dover Seawall Reinstatement (Peter Roberts, Professional Head of Track, Costain Group)

    Synopsis: Following a series of severe storms in the preceding weeks, the sea wall protecting the
    railway between Folkestone and Dover was found to have suffered catastrophic damage, necessitating
    closure of the railway on 24 December 2015. The initial estimate of the work needed to reconstruct the
    defences and reopen the railway was 12 months. Costain, working in close collaboration with Network
    Rail and other stakeholders, developed and implemented an integrated multi-disciplinary programme to
    reinstate the sea wall, enabling the railway to be reopened on 5 September 2016, 3 months ahead of the original forecast. The Speaker will describe the processes.
