Transportation infrastructure faces unique challenges as global mobility and trade continues to increase.
As a permeable road surface, asphalt can be prone to cracking and wear. Reinforcement delays the occurrence of cracks and reduces the effects of stress.
Enkadrain geocomposite drainage layers instead of a granular fill offers a variety of benefits, including preventing water build-up behind conventional retaining structures and bridge abutments, so reducing damage.
Preventing damage to road structures by draining edges and soil embankments to maintain the soil's strength.
Accelerated consolidation of soft soils by using prefabricated vertical drains (PVD), and using Geosynthetic Encased Columns to ensure the columns transfer loads vertically.
Erosion prevention mats allow fast vegetation growth and provide a foothold for vegetation root systems.
Adfil synthetic fibres in concrete barriers, pavement and rail sleepers improve impact, abrasion and freeze-thaw resistance.
Solutions to resist the upward movement of fine soil particles, and reinforcement to improve bearing capacity over weaker subgrades or prevent deformation of ballast.
Cost-effective and sustainable schemes to optimise minimal available land space when creating new infrastructure. Reduces the need for removing in-situ materials or importing new materials.
For reinforcing and stabilising foundations and sub-bases over weak soils, we can advise on different solutions for varied needs.
Innovative and cost-effective vibration damping solutions to reduce vibrations transmitted through soil and concrete to adjacent structures from road, trains, trams and construction traffic.
Our geosynthetics have a long history in road, rail and airport work, providing the necessary cost, time and environmental savings for infrastructure sustainability.
