GEOGRID REINFORCED PILED ROAD OVER PEAT

The construction of roads over up to 11 m of peat in East Sumatra has required extensive engineering investigations. Environmental constraints in a sensitive undeveloped forest area required the use of a combination of locally available materials combined with geogrids to produce a satisfactory solution. Previous difficulties with road construction in this terrain are discussed, together with the design of the geogrid reinforced raft and the field trials which resulted in substantial changes to the design and construction procedures to provide a practical and economic solution.
