Many countries rely on railways as one of their primary methods of passenger and freight transport. Europe has an integrated network throughout virtually the entire continent. In India, China and Japan, millions of people use trains everyday. In North America, freight rail transport is also widespread and used throughout.
Railroads across the globe are prioritizing maintenance-of-way projects focusing on bridges. The work is either part of broader plans to maintain states of good repair or it’s part of an initiative to replace a worn-out bridge so a new one can better accommodate heavier loads and faster trains.
Synthetex’s HYDROTEX® Fabric Formed Concrete erosion control and scour protections systems provide a wide range of solutions ranging from articulating concrete block scour aprons at bridge abutments and around support columns to revetments along track right of ways.
