Geosynthetics in Railways (2021)

The use of geosynthetics to reduce or replace traditional layers is now an accepted part of track-bed construction and renewals around the world. When correctly specified and installed, geosynthetics are proven to:

  • Enhance track performance
  • Significantly extend design life
  • Reduce the time required to renew a specific
    length of track (or allow more to be renewed
    in a fixed time)
  • Reduce overall material costs
