CTRL 310 in London, United-Kingdom

Ground improvement to allow the Eurostar to operate

Part of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link (CTRL) is built on Controlled Modulus Columns. Menard suggested this technique to improve the soil along the Thames River in the suburbs of London so that the Eurostar could operate as intended. For this project, Menard used a short mast for the installation of the column in low headroom, under the A13 highway viaduct.
