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. In railroad applications, 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.
