Soil Nails

Similar to rock bolts, except the anchor is typically installed in soil (clay or weathered rock) faces or embankments.

Soil nailing can be an economical technique for stabilising road and railway cuttings and is usually complimented with the use of shotcrete on the face of the exposed cutting. Soil nailing rates of over 700m/day/rig have been achieved at Adelaide Gateway South, NorthConnex, WestConnex and the Glenfield to Leppington Rail Line.
