Transportation Infrastructure

Solutions for transportation infrastructure


Transportation infrastructure faces unique challenges as global mobility and trade continues to increase.

Asphalt Reinforcement

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.

Capillary Break Layer

Capillary break layers are widely used to replace sandy gravel or gravel layers, applied as capillary break-layers in embankment bases and pavement structures Using EnkaBreak Geocomposite is an effective solution for application in any kind of pavement structure to reduce the negative impact of high and differential groundwater conditions

Drainage For Earth Retaining Structures And Bridge Abutments

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.

Edge Drainage

Preventing damage to road structures by draining edges and soil embankments to maintain the soil's strength.

Embankments On Weak Soils And Areas Prone To Subsidence

Accelerated consolidation of soft soils by using prefabricated vertical drains (PVD), and using Geosynthetic Encased Columns to ensure the columns transfer loads vertically.

Erosion Control

Erosion prevention mats allow fast vegetation growth and provide a foothold for vegetation root systems.

Reinforced Soil Structures

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.

Roads & Working Platforms Over Soft Ground

For reinforcing and stabilising foundations and sub-bases over weak soils, we can advise on different solutions for varied needs.

Vibration Damping

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.
