This new structural embankment is engineered from Green Terramesh in combination with Paragrid primary reinforcing georgics.
The system enables the construction of steep slopes (up to 70 degrees) that can be covered with vegetation to form a green solution. On this project Green Terramesh units with a 45⁰ face inclination were adopted by the designer due to the limited space available, and the necessity to overpass the railway line and other obstructions.
Green Terramesh is an environmentally friendly modular system used to form vegetated (green) faced soil reinforced slopes (also known as Mechanically Stabilised Earth) and embankments. It has been used globally on some of the most significant infrastructure schemes.
