GEOWEB® Geocells for Railways

GEOWEB® Geocells for Railways, Intermodal, & Port Stabilisation

Solve soil stability challenges in rail applications using the GEOWEB geocell system. Watch how the GEOWEB soil stabilisation system keeps railroads on track.

Soil Stabilisation System

Track Ballast Reinforcement

Railway engineers worldwide have relied on the GEOWEB technology to create high-stiffness roadbed foundations under track, and at bridge approaches, diamonds, and turn-outs. The GEOWEB system is extremely effective in stabilising track subgrades, and has even more beneficial value in soft soil areas.

  • Reduces Rock Size and Cross-Section Thickness: Rock confined in the GEOWEB structure replaces expensive larger stone, reducing aggregate size by up to 10 times. The aggregate thickness and cross-section can be reduced by up to 50%.
  • Less Down-Time: The GEOWEB material can be quickly installed to make any necessary repairs and minimise costly track disruptions.
  • Installation Benefits: Due to the ease of installation, the GEOWEB material can be installed by the railroad’s on-site crews.

Intermodal, Port & Bulk Transfer Yard Stabilisation

Heavy traffic at intermodal, port, and bulk transfer yards can create rutting, potholes, pavement degradation, and ultimately pavement failure. The GEOWEB system solves those surface and base stability problems. The GEOWEB structure also can reduce the depth of pavement required for paved surfaces (by up to 30%).

The GEOWEB system:

  • creates a stable surface—diffuses vertical pressures and lateral stresses.
  • allows the subgrade material to withstand more than 12-15 times the number of load cycles with less
  • deflection and less long-term settlement.
  • reduces the structural infill depth by 50% or more.
  • may allow use of on-site sand or lower quality aggregate.
  • lowers maintenance requirements and costs.
