Northern Rail Heaton Depot Vegetation Clearance ()

In July 2015 Northern Rail contacted Infrasafe to clear an area of scrub from the middle of the sidings in Heaton Depot, the work was required to increase sighting lines and to prevent the scrub trees from interfering with the Overhead Line Equipment.

The work was carried out over a two day period with 3 men utilising strimmers, chainsaws and a tracked chipper. Once all the area had been strimmed and the woody vegetation cut down and chipped, the whole area was sprayed with herbicide to help prevent regrowth from the cut tree stumps.

If you would like further information, or would like to speak to Infrasafe about utilising our vegetation clearance/maintenance services. Please contact Brian Cairns at
