Paraweb reinforced soil wall: A perfect solution to minimize land acquisition

In the development of street roads and bridges, paraweb Reinforced Soil wall innovation is unequivocally arising as a favored choice because of its benefits over the customary systems, for example, masonry walls & RCC retaining walls.

The Indian street area will be seeing a gigantic investment in the coming years. There is an objective of development of 30km ( or 41km as arranged by the Road Transport and Highway Ministry) of streets each day. However, to accomplish this, the speed of construction is vital. 

The government’s objective additionally incorporates commissioning 2,800km (2016-2017) of rail line track and Broad Gauge lines at more than 7 km each day. The arrangement is to build something similar to around 13km each day in 2017-18 and 19km each day in 2018-19. Bridges, flyovers, and underpasses are needed to be worked as a component of street and railroad construction. These constructions require strong approaches which are customarily assembled utilizing embankment or RCC retaining walls.


Parts of Earth dikes are typically built at a slant of 1H:2V  requiring a lot of lands. One reason for delays in National Highway development has been the course of land obtaining RS walls will need less land contrasted with a conventional embankment which can diminish issues identified to land acquisition. RS walls are viewed as conservative overall (thinking about polymeric reinforcement, flimsy concrete facia) and the basic effective method for erection realizes huge expense investment funds in the scope of 30 to % because of less execution time. 

With regards to speed, the strategy is especially worthwhile. 

The average rate of construction for MacRes walls in average conditions would be around 50m2 per area each day with one group. In this manner, completion of walls in the height range of 5 to 10m will be accomplished at the pace of 5 to 10m lengths of the wall each day. This ought to address acceleration of construction time by a factor of around five times when contrasted with reinforced concrete construction. The rate of output may, where conditions grant, increment to 75 – 100m2 each day. 

Although, the unmistakable pre-framed confronting unit can be projected with an assortment of appealing patterns, and in various tones. The walls’ flexibility and higher protection from seismic loading are some different benefits. MacRes Walls have exhibited generally excellent execution significantly under high seismic loading. According to FHWA, differential development of 1 of every 100 is considered such constructions. 

Since the Paraweb in re wall is made from polymeric materials, utilizing it as a reinforcing element wipes out the risk of erosion. As a rule, carbon impression discharge for reinforced soil structure is generally less, and consequently, it is a green arrangement. 

Drainage is likewise a significant angle for all retaining structures. Graded gravel is utilized as drainage media behind retaining walls. Nonetheless, because of the shortage of the totals in certain pieces of the nation, MacDrain (waste composite) is a decent elective arrangement. 

Paraweb reinforced soil wall is BBA certified and has the best long haul design strength contrasted with all geosynthetic soil reinforcement. MacRes has a positive solid association between ParaWeb (soil support) and facia. Maccaferri has an in-house plan, quality, and talented development group. The quality group does intermittent reviews of designs. The organization has provided material and contributed to development of more than 10 lakh sqm of MacRes walls in India
