Enhancing Railway Infrastructure with Geosynthetics: A Case Study in Ahmednagar

April 19, 2024 | Case Studies

In the heart of Ahmednagar, a bustling city in Maharashtra, India, lies a significant railway project that exemplifies innovation and sustainability in infrastructure development. This case study delves into how the strategic utilization of Ocean Geotextile and Ocean Geogrid-30Kn, supplied by our company, played a pivotal role in enhancing the railway infrastructure in this region.

Project Overview

The railway project in Ahmednagar aimed to modernize and expand the existing railway network to accommodate the growing demands of transportation in the region. This involved various phases, including track bed stabilization, embankment reinforcement, and soil erosion control, to ensure the durability and longevity of the infrastructure.

Challenges Faced

Ahmednagar’s geographical terrain presented several challenges during the project implementation. The soil composition, prone to erosion, posed a risk to the stability of the railway tracks and embankments. Additionally, the project required materials that could withstand heavy loads and provide long-term performance in dynamic environmental conditions.

Solution Provided

To address these challenges, our company supplied Ocean Geotextile and Ocean Geogrid-30Kn, two advanced geosynthetic solutions engineered to deliver superior performance in railway projects.

Ocean Geotextile

Ocean Geotextile, with its high tensile strength and permeability, was deployed extensively across the project site. Its primary functions included separation, filtration, and drainage, effectively preventing soil erosion, maintaining subgrade integrity, and promoting efficient water flow. The 157,200 square meters of Ocean Geotextile used in the project served as a robust foundation for the railway tracks, ensuring long-term stability and reducing maintenance costs.

Ocean Geogrid-30Kn

Complementing the Ocean Geotextile, Ocean Geogrid-30Kn provided enhanced reinforcement to the embankments and subgrade. With its superior tensile strength and load distribution capabilities, the 129,055.25 square meters of Ocean Geogrid-30Kn played a crucial role in improving the structural integrity of the railway infrastructure. It minimized soil movement, prevented rutting, and increased the overall bearing capacity, thereby extending the service life of the tracks and reducing maintenance requirements.

Results and Benefits

The strategic implementation of Ocean Geotextile and Ocean Geogrid-30Kn yielded significant results and benefits for the railway project in Ahmednagar:

  1. Enhanced Durability: The geosynthetic solutions provided enhanced durability to the railway infrastructure, reducing the risk of premature failure and ensuring long-term performance.
  2. Improved Stability: By stabilizing the track bed and embankments, the project achieved improved stability, even in challenging soil conditions, thereby enhancing operational safety and reliability.
  3. Cost Efficiency: The use of Ocean Geotextile and Ocean Geogrid-30Kn resulted in cost savings by minimizing maintenance requirements and extending the service life of the infrastructure.
  4. Environmental Sustainability: With their environmentally friendly design and minimal ecological footprint, the geosynthetic solutions contributed to sustainable infrastructure development, aligning with the principles of environmental stewardship.


The successful completion of the railway project in Ahmednagar stands as a testament to the transformative impact of geosynthetics in modern infrastructure development. Through the strategic utilization of Ocean Geotextile and Ocean Geogrid-30Kn, our company played a crucial role in enhancing the railway infrastructure, ensuring durability, stability, and sustainability for years to come. As we continue to innovate and collaborate in the field of geosynthetics, we remain committed to shaping a future where infrastructure solutions are both efficient and environmentally responsible.
