Helical piles have proven the most cost effective foundation method on rail since 2003, being used extensively for the majority of structures including;

  • OLE’s
  • Signals
  • Gantries
  • Refuge Platforms
  • Platform Extensions
  • GSM-R structures.

The significant reduction in possession time that results from the use of screw piles and steel foundations creates a considerable project saving, and reduces the disruption time to the services on the line and inconvenience to the public.
