The observed field conditions are described in brief and the probable causes for unsatisfactory performance are listed. The proposed solution comprised of removing the ballast, preparation of the formation, laying of a nonwoven geotextile with a thin sand cushion at bottom and top and installing a knitted and PVC coated biaxial geogrid over this.
