The challenge

  • It is necessary to cross the desert areas to reach the isolated agricultural lands. Even the 4×4 vehicles get stuck in the sandy areas.
  • Need to create a firm and stable lane on a sandy terrain for the development of the agricultural areas, ensuring the regular transport of people and equipment

Load Support
Soft soils or soils with low bearing capacity, Rural roads, tracks and access roads

The Solution

To reinforce the sandy tracks with the units of GeoGlobe, filled with local sand.

The alternative solution
To build a conventional road with granular materials or crushed stones, a method which is often rejected because of cost, complicated problems with maintenance and logistics.

GeoGlobe approach and its advantages
To reinforce the tracks using the natural local resources to build a stable lane, in a safety
manner, in order to meet the economic and human requirements.

The technology – simple, effective, economical and durable

Placed on a geotextile above the sandy terrain, the confinement system GeoGlobe is installed and filled with local sand, which is available on site, and then compacted. Note that each passing vehicle on the reinforced track helps to compact the filling material.

The result
Thanks to the reinforcement of the tracks with the confinement system filled with local sand, the vehicle traffic in a desert area is possible and safe even for heavy-weight vehicles. The objective is fully achieved because the rapidly and cheaply built road on sand, which doesn’t have a need for maintenance or a qualified staff for its construction, allows opening up rural areas and promoting their economic development with regular transportation of people and equipment.
