Ballast degradation can rapidly occur under heavy axle loadings over soft subgrade soils. Ballast failure can lead to speed reductions, track downtime, and costly maintenance and repairs. Using the GEOWEB® Ballast Stabilization System reduces the vertical pressure reaching the subgrade and provides a high-stiffness foundation. GEOWEB-stabilized ballast significantly reduces ballast movement, aggregate rotation, and rail settlement—resulting in increased ballast life and long-term performance.
- Understand the benefits of GEOWEB-stabilized ballast from accredited research and testing.
- Learn how the GEOWEB stabilization system can reduce vertical ballast pressure and ballast movement.
- Understand the typical applications for GEOWEB ballast stabilization.
- Learn how to apply GEOWEB stabilization to extend rail life and reduce maintenance.
