The many possible applications of geosynthetics enable fast, safe reconstruction of whole regions after a flood disaster. And the speed with which these measures can be instigated ensues that local residents and businesses can resume near-normal activities without being restricted for months or years by infrastructural issues.
Construction roads, stable embankments, steep supporting structures and bridge abutments – all these and more can be quickly built. Working platforms as well as temporary and permanent fill areas for contaminated sludge, rubble and waste are possible. And there are many more applications which can support the reconstruction required to restore the infrastructure.
