Retaining Wall System Case Studies

East London Line Project - Keystone Retaining Wall System

In 2011, Anderton Concrete was awarded a contract with Birse Metro to supply 3,500m² of their Keystone retaining wall system for use on the final part of the £75m orbital London orbital overground rail network. The new stretch of railway from Surrey Quays to Clapham Junction will complete the missing link around the capital.

The Keystone walls on this project, some up to 7m high, support the new railway line in a number of different situations, including a new bridge structure across Surrey Canal Road.
The walls were built predominantly from a dark Pewter colour with band courses of light grey Flint enhancing the final design.

London Overground is being extended from Clapham Junction to Dalston Junction, making journeys between east and south west London much quicker and easier for passengers.
The new services will start in December 2012 with trains running every 15 minutes calling at Wandsworth Road, Clapham High Street, Denmark Hill, Peckham Rye, Queens Road Peckham, Surrey Quays, the City and all stations to Dalston Junction.

The new railway line is 1.3km long and links the London Overground services at Surrey Quays with the existing railway near Old Kent Road.
