Title: TRACK FOUNDATION
Abstract:
A method of constructing a railway track comprises preparing existing ground so as to receive a layer thereat. Barrier material is laid over the prepared ground. A plurality of tyres that have a single sidewall removed therefrom are placed in a laid-5 flat arrangement such that a remaining sidewall of each resultant tyre cell lies over and adjacent to the barrier material. The tyre cells are in-filled with a fill material. Railway sleepers are arranged in relation to the in-filled layer of tyre cells. Railway tracks are then laid on the railway sleepers.
