PRS-Neoweb™ gives engineers a single soil stabilization strategy for an entire railway infrastructure project. In addition to load support, PRS-Neoweb provides integrated earth stabilization and slope/channel protection for the embankments, retaining walls, flyovers, and stream diversions typical of the railway development projects.

  • Elevated Line Slope Protection – PRS-Neoweb provides long-term erosion protection for all types of rail embankments. Used with topsoil and vegetative cover for green landscapes, PRS-Neoweb provides effective protection, confinement and soil stabilization.
  • Earth Retention Railway Abutments – PRS-Neoweb offers cost-effective mechanically stabilized earth structures for retention walls due to steep slopes, sharp grade changes, irregular topography, or lack of land on a right of way that abut the rail line.
  • Earth Berms & Green Noise Barriers – Earth is one of the best insulators against noise. PRS-Neoweb earth structures provide the excellent sound attenuation, minimize maintenance, and provide a green aesthetic face to surrounding communities. Earth berms provide better noise barriers and are more cost effecient. However PRS-Neoweb retention walls where grade changes are sharp offer excellent acoustic barriers, a green face, and are more durable than concrete alternatives.
