An experiment was conducted in 1977 on construction using the pushing system. The basis of this consists of a prefabricated structure with each element of the culvert being pushed into place under a temporary rail frame work. The advantage of this system is that there is no need to stop traffic or break up track structure. The article describes the site, the construction of the shuttering and the machinery used for pushing.
