To eliminate water pockets and weak spots in the railway formation, pressure grouting with cement has proved satisfactory in the United States. To prepare the roadbed for grouting, water is injected to remove air, clay and other solids to make room for the grout and to test the subsoil to show whether it is suitable for grouting. Measures to avoid wasting of grout and upheaving the track during grouting are described. The proper mix of cement, sand and water and the amount of grout needed are briefly discussed.
