Annual Report 2016 Pipe Jacking at Acton Town Station OnSite was asked to carry out remedial repairs to a brick drainage culvert at Acton Town Station platform. Due to the size of the deformation, Cured-In-Place Pipe lining was not considered suitable. Since the Heathrow Rail Line station is extremely busy, and due to the extremely tight timescales to complete the works, excavation was not an option. Looking to the future SSI Services is in a strong position to continue to grow its revenue and enhance underlying profitability due to the strategic decisions that have been taken throughout the year and in this new financial year. The customer base has been expanded with new disciplines being offered across a number of industry sectors which, in turn, will provide a more stable revenue stream so as to achieve the planned growth without compromising safety, quality and client satisfaction. OnSite’s Head of Rail Services attended site and established that the no-dig structural lining solution, known as Pipe Jacking, would be the most viable solution and this option was presented to the client. Following works approval, OnSite were officially engaged to provide the Pipe Jacking solution to the failing drainage beneath the station. The works were completed safely and efficiently and therefore the PiccadillyHeathrow line was closed for only 24 hours. “The Pipeline Services, OSM and Perco businesses have now been integrated into OnSite.” 19
