The retaining structures alongside railway lines must be perfectly capable of absorbing the vibrations caused by passing trains and supporting the high stresses generated by accelerating and decelerating trains. Reinforced Earth® is a material ideally suited for use in rail systems, including structures for high speed lines. The technologies used are the same as roads; however, the designs are modified to take into account specific requirements concerning surcharges or coefficients of safety, especially for high speed trains. TerraArch™ and TechBox™ cut and cover solutions are also used for railway projects.
