Mersey oil pipeline JLP01_08_077235

A worker carrying out guniting (spraying concrete) on the Mersey oil pipeline, ready for a river crossing.
The Mersey oil pipeline was installed in 1967 by Laing Civil Engineering in association with the French companies, Entrepose and Grands Trevaux de Marseille (GTM). It is 88 miles in length and runs from Ellesmere Port to the Kingsbury Oil Terminal serving the Midlands. The pipeline had to cross the River Trent four times, also the River Tame and a series of streams and canals. The photograph shown was published in November 1967 in the Laing monthly newsletter Team Spirit

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a pivotal moment in the construction of the iconic Mersey oil pipeline. In this image, we witness a dedicated worker diligently carrying out guniting, or spraying concrete, on the pipeline as it prepares for its challenging river crossing. Installed in 1967 by Laing Civil Engineering in collaboration with French companies Entrepose and Grands Trevaux de Marseille (GTM), the Mersey oil pipeline spans an impressive 88 miles from Ellesmere Port to the Kingsbury Oil Terminal, serving the Midlands region. Its significance lies not only in its length but also in its ability to traverse multiple water bodies such as the River Trent four times, along with crossings over the River Tame and various streams and canals. Published within Laing's monthly newsletter Team Spirit back in November 1967, this photograph captures both the magnitude of civil engineering achievements during that era and pays tribute to those who worked tirelessly behind-the-scenes. It serves as a testament to their unwavering dedication and expertise. Preserved within Historic England Archive's collection, this snapshot offers us a glimpse into an important chapter of infrastructure development during Britain's industrial past. As we admire this image today, let us appreciate not just its historical value but also acknowledge how far we have come thanks to these remarkable feats of engineering prowess.
