Located South of Roanne and a hundred kilometers to the West of Lyon, between the towns of Neulise and Balbigny, National Road 82 (RN82) is the last link connecting national road 7 (RN7) to highway A89.
On this crucial road to the opening up of the Roanne territory, the Interdepartmental Directorate of Roads (DIR) has launched works for the creation of a 2x2 lines access road on 4.5 km. The operation also aims at improving road safety.
As part of this project, the company Eiffage TP completes the 15 meters high Reinforced Earth® abutments for a hydraulic isostatic structure. The reinforcements are GeoStrap® synthetic strips.
A particular approach was taken for the design and construction of this highly technical structure.
In total, Terre Armée France has provided 2300 sqm of Reinforced Earth® walls.
