Date: 2016-07-16view:

Anchor bolt is a reliable anchoring system for infrastructure projects. Anchor bolt has been be largely applied to railway construction, tunneling, mining, hydropower station, dam, bridge base, foundation reinforcement of buildings. Furthermore, it is workable for the repair of ground subsidence, hole collapse, crack, landslip and other geological disaster. Especially for the tight schedule construction, the application of anchor bolt has great advantages over mortar bolt.
The Crossrail construction is the largest infrastructure project in Europe. The project will connect Shenfield in Essex with Reading in Berkshire. Construction began in 2008, and is scheduled to be fully operational in 2019. Crossrail will increase the city’s rail transport capacity by up to 10% and bring an additional 1.5 million people within commuting distance to Central London. This will allow up to 30,000 new jobs in the capital within a decade of opening, sustaining the growth of the UK economy.
The service will operate 24 trains per hour at peak times in each direction from Paddington to Whitechapel, taking twenty minutes off the travel time from Heathrow to Central London. It is estimated by Crossrail that approximately 200 million passengers will use the service annually.
