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.
