Supply of repurposed steel casing for A Network Rail installation at East Linton Station

Using John Lawrie Tubulars’ repurposed tubular products and bespoke procedures saved this project 293.73t CO2e. That’s a 97.21% saving over the production of new prime steel products.

Project Summary

John Lawrie Tubulars was commissioned by long-term client, Van Elle, the UK’s largest ground engineering contractor, to supply repurposed steel tubulars for the use of piling at a Network Rail station in East Lothian.

In January 2015, Network Rail agreed to develop proposals for a new station in East Linton with the objective of providing a new two-platform station on the East Coast Main Line. A new fully accessible station has now been completed, providing direct access to communities on both sides of the railway via active travel – walking/cycling paths – and offers a step-free access across the railway via a footbridge with lifts.

John Lawrie Tubulars supplied over 1200 meters in 140Nr. 273mm tubes for use as piling for the updated platform and over-track walkway, delivering a carbon emissions saving of 293.73t CO2e when compared to the production of new steel products in the process.
