Embankment Fill Consolidation

ABG uses a unique range of drainage geocomposites for relieving pore water pressure during the construction of new embankments, especially where marginal fill is involved. The geocomposite provides a starter layer beneath the embankment and for use in subsequent layers throughout the height of the embankment. Pore water pressure is then dissipated quickly under compaction, significantly saving on drainage stone resources and reducing disposal costs. This greatly improves the sustainability and carbon footprint of large highway and railway schemes, and for bridges, logistics / business / retail park approach roads and earthworks projects.
