In the course of numerous infrastructure projects for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi (Russia), a new 48 km long transport link between the city of Adler on the Black Sea and Krasnaya Polyana in the Caucasus was built. This transport connection consists of a highway & a railway line.
In the area of PK-325, at 32.5 km railroad mark, both highway and railway come close together resulting in a geotechnical interaction with each other, so that in this location the construction of a vertical retaining wall was necessary.
Bewehrte Erde (Reinforced Earth in Germany) was commissioned for the final execution design and delivery of around 5,320 m² of retaining walls with TerraClass® panels in combination with HA GeoStrap® synthetic strips.
