Cement injection has prevented the scouring of ballast by high seas at Dawlish, England. The grout used consisted of four parts of pulverised fuel to one part of cement. All points were driven vertically except those nearest the sea, which were at 58 deg to the vertical. The grout was injected until breakout occurred. Experience showed that some points could be dispensed with because grout from the others covered the whole area satisfactorily.
