There are numerous issues that may plague railways, and accompanying structures such as bridges or tunnels, over time with frequent use or environmental stresses. These issues may be caused by the constant vibrations or weight of the railways being used by trains, or by unforeseen subsurface soil problems.
The most common improvements required include:
- Soil nailing to stabilize slopes surrounding or above tracks
- Compaction grouting to reinforce, stabilize and level tracks
- Cement grouting to stabilize soil beneath tracks due to settling or sinkholes
- Bulk/void fill grouting to fill underlying abandoned utilities
