Mottingham Track Renewals

Cleshar were called upon to provide technical expertise and track renewal knowledge to deliver a plain line renewal at Mottingham on the Dartford Loop in southeast London.

Scope of works

The task involved the coordination of train, labour, plant, and technical resources within a tight time frame such that 695m of track and ballast could be replaced within a planned 52-hour possession window.


Basing members of our team within the Client operating office to ensure best possible communication was maintained was key to the success of this operation as there were several complex interdependencies that had to be understood and managed, where the personal touch was best.

Benefits / Project Outcome

Execution of the works involved both Client and Cleshar staff and a strong team ethic was encouraged and delivered. The works were delivered in full and show the marriage of knowledge, experience and attention to detail and the power of that combination in delivering track renewal works in complex Railway environments where access to the railway is at a premium.
