Cadent Deploys CISBOT for Mains Remediation Beneath the Strand

CISBOT is now operating beneath The Strand, one of Central London’s busiest thoroughfares, to remediate a critical segment of the gas distribution network. In conjunction with UK gas distribution network Cadent, CISBOT technology is being deployed along a majority of the 850m section of the A4 within the City of Westminster to minimize impacts on the public, transportation, and environment.

According to an article published in The Telegraph, there are 300,000 holes are dug every year in London for roadworks, resulting in 36% of the city’s traffic delays, costing businesses £1 billion, and causing considerable disruption to the public. By utilizing CISBOT Cadent is eliminating the need for traditional large-scale excavation and disruption of gas services while minimizing interference to the area’s traffic and pedestrian flow.

The first project site is located just outside of the Charing Cross railway station where ULC’s advanced robotic system will work to extend the life of Cadent’s vital distribution system. The entire project is expected to continue through this summer.
