Maccaferri’s devotion to the environmental cause is reflected in its sustainable solution, including road and railway infrastructure systems discussed at the 10th Annual Railway Conference in New Delhi.
The two concepts:
- Railway transportation infrastructure
seem to be as far apart as black and white. Still, with its highest technological developments, Maccaferri manages to marry the two concepts together.
High-quality materials are used by a team of well practiced civil engineers and designers to develop road and railway transportation infrastructure solutions; sustainable in essence so that Maccaferri may play its part in reducing the human carbon footprint and in improving rail infrastructure.
Recently, Maccaferri partook at the 6th Asian Mining Congress, where Maccaferri showcased its gabion based solutions. Also, Maccaferri held two technical sessions in which it presented a range of systems that are related to River Training works, Erosion control, and Pavement Stabilisation.
Part of the sessions included a discussion of the Konkan Railway project for which Maccaferri provided Gabion walls with a stepped rear face.
The 10th annual Conference on “Railways in India” in New Delhi provided Maccaferri with a platform on which to showcase its newest sustainable solutions relevant to the railway sector.
