RE047 Landslips in cuttings, 1845.

  • RE047   Landslips in cuttings, 1845.

NEW MAY 2020. In 1845 the construction of several new railways was being hindered by landslips in cuttings and on embankments. Braithwaite was having to deal with this problem on the Eastern Counties Railway. The Great Western, the London and Birmingham and the London and Croydon Railways were others in a similar situation.

During that year 'The Civil Engineer and Architect's Journal, Scientific and Railway Gazette' reported on discussions by the Institution of Civil Engineers concerning the issue, and that is what is provided here. The cutting at Brentwood Hill features as one of the examples, with a set of sectional drawings.
