Infrastructure projects to increase use of geosynthetics: NHIDCL

SearchIN: Given the life-extension benefits and durability that geosynthetics provide, they are increasingly being deployed for road projects in regions with high soil erosion, an NHIDCL official said today.

“For accelerating usage of Geosynthetics in road construction, the Ministry of Textiles is incentivising their usage by providing a subsidy,” Anand Kumar, Managing Director, National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation, said at a global summit on Geosynthetics here.

Highlighting the manifold applications of Geosynthetics, he said there is a need to sensitise on the advantages of its adoption and their positive impact from a lifecycle cost-benefit perspective.
