STAFFORDSHIRE. A view of the work being carried out to install the Barlaston pipeline against a steep and unstable embankment beside the A34 dual carriageway.
The contract for the Barlaston gas pipeline was awarded to Laing Pipelines in January 1970. The pipeline ran for approximately 29 miles from Uffington, near Shrewsbury, to Barlaston in North Staffordshire. Along the route there were 61 crossings, including under the M6, the main electric railway from Euston to Crew, two canals and six rivers, and a steep climb alongside the A34 dual carriageway near Barlaston. This photograph shows where the pipeline emerges from beneath the road and then bends at a 45% angle to climb up the embankment

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the arduous task of installing the Barlaston gas pipeline in Staffordshire during the 1970s. The image showcases a steep and unstable embankment beside the A34 dual carriageway, where dedicated workers are seen diligently carrying out their engineering duties. Awarded to Laing Pipelines in January 1970, this ambitious project involved laying a pipeline spanning approximately 29 miles from Uffington to Barlaston. Along its route, there were numerous challenges including crossing under major infrastructure such as the M6 motorway, an electric railway line, canals, and rivers. The focal point of this photograph is where the pipeline emerges from beneath the road before taking on a daunting 45% incline up the embankment. The sheer scale of this feat is emphasized by the presence of heavy machinery like cranes and trucks that have been deployed to assist with construction. This snapshot not only highlights impressive civil engineering work but also pays homage to those individuals who fearlessly took on this demanding endeavor. Their dedication and expertise ensured that essential gas supply would reach Barlaston efficiently and reliably. Preserved within Historic England's Archive collection, this image serves as a testament to human ingenuity and perseverance in overcoming challenging terrain for vital infrastructure development.
