Track bed stabilization is critical in the areas where the railway tracks are laid on the black cotton type soils, loose or water bearing soil. The property of volumetric changes alongside shifts of atmospheric conditions make stabilization dangerous to use as a replacement material below railway tracks. The black cotton type soils swells when wet and shrinks when dry resulting terrible cracks without warning, sometimes 15 to 20 cm wide and up to 4 m deep. This, it goes without saying, is an incredible hazard for trains.
The best defense is a good offense. Railways should be stabilized long before the danger of cracking occurs—contact us to help you make it happen.
