This report on roadbed stabilization is in four parts. Part one presents discussion on the recommended practice for tie and pole driving as a method of roadbed stabilization. Part two describes investigations into extensive slides and possible corrective measures for each area. Part three contains a description of the provisions taken in new yard construction at two locations to increase stability and service behavior of the track structure. It is a record of preventive measures to eliminate the need for future stabilization. It is recommended that similar procedures be adopted for all new construction. Part four is a record of pressure grouting projects showing grout quantities, original costs and savings effected through reduced maintenance. This data is indicative of the benefits obtained through judicious stabilization.
