Field test with first cement-free platform walls
Bosch Beton started producing sustainable platform walls two years ago for ProRail’s Standardised Platforms project. Thousands of walls have now been placed at various stations. We signed a partnership agreement with ProRail last year for a sustainable retaining wall pilot project. The first cement-free platform walls have now been placed at Blerick station for a two-year field test.
We started producing sustainable platform walls two years ago for ProRail’s Standardised Platforms project. These platform walls have been optimised in terms of design and these retaining walls are also being produced with a new sustainable concrete mixture and in two-metre lengths instead of one metre. This results in a more efficient use of materials, savings on transport and in a positive ECI value. We have already supplied thousands of these sustainable platform walls for various stations.
Sustainable retaining walls pilot project
Bosch Beton signed a partnership agreement with ProRail for the sustainable retaining wall pilot project last year. The purpose of this pilot is to work with market partners to make retaining walls along platforms even more sustainable. We have since been working hard on this and the first cement-free platform walls were placed at Blerick station last week for a two-year field test!
Bosch Beton is involved in the ProRail ‘Standardised Platforms’ project in which we supply platform walls for various stations. We work with partners including Wallaard Noordeloos and Van Ooijen Gouda on this. We optimised our platform retaining wall especially for this project and developed a new sustainable concrete mixture. The elements are KIWA certified in accordance with the latest ProRail product specification.
