Construction phase: installation of Terramesh units
The big displacements that occurred along the road N837 in the municipality of Yvoir, province of Namur (Wallonia, Belgium), required the reconstruction of both sides of the road embankment. The customer SPW asked for the support of Maccaferri through the local partner Texion Geosynthetics NV to design the new reinforced embankment.
The choice of Green Terramesh was very well appreciated because of the environmental friendliness and the ease of construction. Moreover, geogrids (ParaGrid 50) were laid through every Terramesh layer to increase the internal stability of the road embankment. The construction phase took approximately one month.
