New office premises for EDES planned

Saturday, September 19th, 2015

Yew Tree Photo Ref 0681 400250Having taken ownership of a disused late 19th Century Public House earlier this year, plans are well underway for the conversion to EDES’ new office premises.

Located within easy reach of the Greater Manchester motorway network, the property will have two generous sized meeting rooms and plenty of visitor parking spaces!

We are looking forward to welcoming clients to the new development, which is planned for completion at the beginning of 2016. Watch this space for further details.

Installation of Utility Under-Track Crossing

Friday, September 4th, 2015

Ribblesdale Crossing 400250Traditional timber heading was among the techniques given consideration for installation of a new cable crossing beneath an existing rail crossing in Ribblesdale near Clitheroe.

However, following closer examination of the ground conditions which exposed limestone outcrop at shallow depth, a rock auger became preferred method for installation.

The rail line remained operational throughout the works, due to the depth of limestone cover over the augered crossing.

The crossing took just three days to drill once launch and reception pits had been excavated by hand, and was completed well in advance of the cabling installation works.
