There is an ever growing use of tunnels for essential infrastructure especially in London where space for ever growing demand is at a premium. Once installed a tunnel gives 24 hour access for installation and maintenance. Tunnels are susceptible to water ingress from a combination of ground water and storm water.
Although infrastructure is generally designed to withstand the wet conditions, standing water is detrimental over a prolonged period. This also leads to delays for maintenance crews being unable to access essential services. Utilities in particular are relying increasingly in the use of tunnels and Elliott Environmental Drainage Ltd is one of the leading contractors in this market. We are proud to say that we are a service provider to some of the biggest utility Companies in the UK.
As part of your companies PPM schedule underground tunnels, chambers vessels, pits and interceptors are often overlooked. Problems that then arise cause costly delays and inconvenience which regular maintenance can help to mitigate.
Hidden dangers are inherent within any confined space, legionella, leptospirosis (weils disease), flammable gasses and oxygen depletion to name a few. We at Elliott Environmental Drainage Lt have a full time Health and Safety professional overseeing all confined space work.
