GEOCELL – Vehicle access road protecting tree roots (Kent)
Vehicle access road protecting tree roots
TERRAM™ Geocell 22/20
Civil Engineering & Building
The access route to a new housing development required the construction of a roadway which crossed over an area where tree roots were close and at surface level. In order not to damage the roots, Geocell was specified with the dual purpose of offering a strong stable base for the access routes whilst protecting tree roots from damage.
Geocell cellular confinement system was used as it offered the perfect solution for tree root protection where a road or driveway is required whilst preventing soil compaction and protecting tree roots. Geocell cellular confinement system ensured that downward forces by vehicles are spread laterally reducing loads on the underlying soils.
