And with anumber of billion-pound-plus projects currently in development, thereare no shortage of opportunities on the horizon.▪ Not sure which venture is for you? Here are five of the biggest civilengineering projects you could be working on right now:www.derby.ac.uk/technologyOn the road…▪ Contrary to what you may have heard in certain 1980’s film sequels, where we’regoing we definitely do need roads.▪ In fact, with the total road length in Great Britain totalling somewhere in theregion of 250,000 miles, the development of improved road systems is anintegral part of making our transport infrastructure more reliable.▪ The biggest project in this area is undoubtedly the A14 Cambridge to HuntingdonImprovement Scheme, which aims to relieve congestion, unlock growth and helpconnect communities in East Anglia and beyond. The government hascommitted up to £1.5 billion to the project, which will be completed in 2021.▪ The construction is a joint venture between Costain and Skanska.▪ Honourable mentions: Improvements on the M62, the Road Modernisationplan in London and the Heysham to M6 link (a major road plan 65 years in themaking).www.derby.ac.uk/technologyOn the tracks…▪ There are many major rail building and regeneration projects currently underwayacross the UK, ranging from the highly publicised HS2 high-speed line, throughto the new Borders railway in Scotland, the largest domestic railway constructedin Britain for 100 years. However, none are likely to have the impact seen by thenew Crossrail line.▪ The 118-kilometre railway line is already well under construction, although itwon’t be until 2019 that we see the culmination of the 10 year project. At thepeak of construction there were almost 15,000 workers.▪ When it’s completed, Crossrail will link parts of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire,via central London, to parts of South East London, Essex and Kent. Not only willit ease congestion on busy commuting lines across the capital, it will also be oneof Europe’s largest railway and infrastructure construction projects.Your moveCrossrail 2…▪ Honourable mentions: HS2, the £294 million new Borders railway in Scotland(connecting Edinburgh and Tweedbank) and the Manchester Victoria Stationregeneration project. Derby at £300 million is nearly readywww.derby.ac.uk/technologyIn the air …▪ When it comes to civil engineering, nothing inspires industry respect quite like bridges.▪ Some of the world’s most iconic bridges are found all across the UK, ranging fromBarlow and Hawkshaw’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, the Iron Bridge in Shropshire andNewcastle’s own Tyne Bridge. However, a new icon has now joined the ranks: a thirdForth bridge.▪ Constructed in 1882, the original Forth Bridge was a true feat of Victorianengineering. A second bridge was constructed on the site, around nine miles west ofEdinburgh, in the 1960s, with the third structure set to complete the impressive trio inthe next few years. Officially known as the Queensferry Crossing, the new addition tothe East Scottish skyline is a joint venture by members of the Forth Crossing BridgeConstructors consortium (Dragados, Hotchief, American Bridge International andMorrison Construction).▪ It is also be the longest three-tower cable-stayed bridge in the world. How abouthaving that on your CV?▪ Honourable mentions: The Mersey Gateway project, the Thames Gateway Bridge,the M1 Bridge at Lubbesthorpe.www.derby.ac.uk/technologyUnderground…▪ When it comes to subterranean engineering, there aren’t many bigger projectsthan the Thames Tideway Tunnel.▪ Often dubbed capital’s new ‘super sewer’, the £4.2 billion development is beingundertaken to upgrade London’s current Victorian drainage system, and bring itinto the 21st century.▪ The tunnel, which will be 15 miles long and have a capacity of 1.6 million cubicmetres, is the biggest infrastructure project ever undertaken by the UK waterindustry. Construction started in 2016, and 20% of all workers at the site arefrom the local workforce. A number of engineering apprenticeships were createdwith 1 in 50 jobs filled by apprentices.▪ The project aims to be completed by 2023.▪ Honourable mentions: London’s Crossrail (yes, again), HS2. LUL NorthernLine extension at Batterseawww.derby.ac.uk/technologyEverything else…▪ Probably on a par with bridges for their ability to impress, the world’s biggeststadiums would be nothing without civil engineering.▪ And although there was an unquestionable rise in construction projects of thisnature in the run-up to London 2012, there are still jobs out there for anyonelooking to build the next theatre of dreams.▪ The biggest of these is likely to be found in North London, where Tottenham arebuilding a brand-new 56,000-seater stadium from 2018. Other major stadiumconstruction projects include Windsor Park in Northern Island, and the OlympicStadium improvements being made before West Ham United take up residence.▪ And if constructing the next big home of sporting events isn’t really you’re thing,why not go down the residential route? 300,000 new homes are projected to beneeded next year, all across the UK. So there’s really no excuse not to getbuilding.▪ Honourable mentions: The Olympic Stadium redevelopment, Windsor Park inNorthern Ireland, Liverpool’s Anfield expansion.www.derby.ac.uk/technologyEngineering Happiness!!!!!!▪ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4zymdaEJlAwww.derby.ac.uk/technologywww.derby.ac.uk/technologywww.derby.ac.uk/technologyThe government has set out how £100bn will be spentfrom 2016-2021 on building new UK infrastructure▪ Roads £28bn▪ Rail £38bn▪ Energy £110bn of private sector investment▪ Flood Defences £3.7bn▪ Housing £3.3bn▪ Schools £18bn▪ Health £4.7bnwww.derby.ac.uk/technologywww.derby.ac.uk/technologyWhat are London’s five biggestinfrastructure challenges?Following London First’s Infrastructure Summit lastweek, the group’s infrastructure director David Leamidentifies the biggest hurdles facing the capital andwhat needs to be done to overcome them.www.derby.ac.uk/technologywww.derby.ac.uk/technologyCrossrail 2 has momentum – and needs business support to maintain itIf the London Infrastructure Summit was a stick of rock, the letters running through it read Crossrail 2 – from the opening address by LondonFirst chief executive Jasmine Whitbread, through comments from Network Rail’s Mark Carne and TfL’s Mike Brown.The case for Crossrail 2 is proven. But we can’t lose sight of the need to invest in infrastructure and build agreement across the UK as a whole.Our choice isn’t Crossrail 2 or better rail services in the north of England – it has to be both.Housing is now core to the infrastructure debateA few years ago, housing was something of an afterthought in an infrastructure debate. Now it is ever-present: the contribution towards newhousing supply is part of the core business case for transport schemes – whether Crossrail 2, or the Bakerloo line extension.With the Mayor of London’s ongoing commitment to building the homes that London needs, housing will be on the agenda for years to come.Big issues remain in aviationWith all of London’s airports continuing to experience rising customer demand, capacity remains a key issue. Having finally receivedgovernment-backing for a third runway, Heathrow continues to be upbeat But with a clear majority in parliament and backing from businesses,airports and travellers around the UK, this vital and long overdue new capacity must now be delivered.How should London deal with innovation and disruption?One of the big questions left unanswered was how London responds to disruptive technologies, particularly in the road transport sector.TfL continues to have an uneasy relationship with new taxi providers, currently locked in legal tussles with both Uber and Taxify. And with awave of dockless bike schemes hitting the capital, before we even talk about connected and autonomous vehicles, this is something Londonhas to get to grips with.It’s not just transport and housingFrom the growing risk of water shortages and the need to begin planning now for new water resources in the South-east, to how London couldgenerate more energy from its own waste and the need to upgrade our digital infrastructure.To keep London, and the UK, globally competitive these are the questions we will have to find answers to.www.derby.ac.uk/technologyCONSTRUCTION FORMSVery Basic Very exquisiteModern cities Roads & bridgesStrength in ConstructionThere is nothing that HUMANScan not BUILDWe can learnfrom the pastmethods whichhave beenforgottenChallenges in ConstructionWeatherTornadosMother EarthEarth quakesUntrained staffFaulty materialsDesign flawsThe list goes onAvailability ofresourcesContractual ProcessOpportunities in civil engineering transport andconstructionThe world is your oysterThreats to the construction processUnder-estimation of costs of design, construction or operationResulting sometimes in late or unfinished projects manpowerresourcesDisputes & Strike actionLate delivery Plant & machinery Political Interference Anybody know where this is?Or this?Or this?Not this!www.derby.ac.uk/technologyOr this?Or this?www.derby.ac.uk/technologyQueensferry Crossing or Forth 3Tallest bridge in the UK▪ From a blank piece of paper, to a world icon, the £1.35bn, 2.7kmQueensferry Crossing took 10 years to complete, with just six forconstruction.▪ The Queensferry Crossing is now the tallest bridge in the UK and longestthree-tower, cable-stayed structure anywhere in the world.▪ The south tower boasts the world record for longest and largest marinesupplied underwater concrete pour – 16,689m3 was placed in 15.2 days, withwork taking place 24 hours a day, up to 40m below the surface.▪ Steel caissons 30m in diameter, and more than 30m tall were sunk downthrough 20m of soil to rock head to create a dry workspace, with the rockthen cleaned before the concrete plug was poured.
