within the GCC sand or dust storms blow across large stretches of the highway system creating near zero visibility and dangerous driving situations daily.

Statistics

Saudi Aramco is responsible for 1,300 km of company roads in the Southern area of Saudi Arabia.

The company is responsible for removing sand from 302 km over the course of the year.

In 2014 3.6 million cubic meters of sand was removed from the roads.

 

TerraFirma sand stabilisation will reduce this

Data from friends of the Red Crescent Committee shows a reported 526,000 traffic accidents annually in Saudi Arabia.
An average of 1,614 each day or roughly 1 car accident every second, with up to 17 fatalities per day many due to poor weather and driving conditions.

Experts predict that if the rate of accidents continue Saudi Arabia will have 4 million traffic accidents per year by 2030.

 

Current economic loss to traffic accident per year in Saudi Arabia is estimated to be SAR21 Billion

Custom Berm design and creation based on data specific survey results allows the protective berm to act as natures barrier and prevent the sand movement and build up on highways.

By applying TerraFirma TF-2000 polymer to the protective berm you can be assured that the final finish will be environmentally friendly, save you money and help prevent unnecessary accidents.

TerraFirma making the regions rail networks safer

Within the GCC region sand, dust and rain storms affect most of the rail network creating daily life-threatening erosion of embankments and sand movement issues that are known to cause major accidents and derailments.

Rail 1
Rail 2

The GCC Railway will soon connect all six GCC nations with a network running through Kuwait City, Dammam in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates, Doha in the State of Qatar, Muscat in the Sultanate of Oman, and Manama in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Sand movement and embankment erosion will affect over 90% of this network.

Just 1″ of sand over the top of the rail is hazardous to the train operation and the passengers onboard

 

TerraFirma sand stabilisation will reduce this

In April 2015, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, suffered a major sand storm that lasted 3 days with variable wind speeds more than 160kph and visibility less than 50m in places. All train services to and from Riyadh were cancelled due to safety fears.

Recent bad weather has seen excessive rain fall causing embankment erosion to unprotected rail lines with disastrous consequences, derailments and vital line closures leading to massive income loss and major repair bills.

Rail 3

Custom Berm design and creation based on data specific survey results allows the protective berm to act as natures barrier and prevent the sand movement and future erosion from affecting the rail lines.

By applying TerraFirma TF-2000 polymer to the protective berm you can be assured that the final finish will be environmentally friendly, save you money and help prevent unnecessary accidents.
