Bridge abutments spanning railway tracks


Reinforced Earth® bridge abutments on either side of existing tracks offer the same advantages as Reinforced Earth® walls. Abutments can therefore be built tight against the clearance line or service road. For instance, overpasses featuring the combined use of Reinforced Earth® abutments and precast beam decks create only minimal disruption to train traffic. Depending on site conditions and owners' requirements, simple or integral load-bearing abutments can be used, or even mixed abutments.
