Reinforcement of roads by geogrids

On weak soils, for road construction contractors generally need a thick layer of base course.

Using geogrids as reinforcing layers can help to reduce the required thickness of the unbound base course stabilizing structures on soft ground or in unsettled areas.

Another problem is the forces coming from the traffic causes crack on the surface of the road. Geogrid reinforcing layers can absorb the forces and delay propagation of cracks the life of the structure may be increased.

In railway construction multiple layers of geogrid reinforcements can be used to provide more effective stabilization.
