For the works to complete the Valbrenta bike lane, scheduled in the section between Oliero, Campolongo and Pove, Geo & Tex 2000 spa has supplied the geotextile GEO PP AG 300 to the subcontractor company Gheller s.r.l. The geotextile has been used as separation layer between the natural foundation and the upper layer made of stabilized material. The functions performed by the non-woven are filtration, separation and drainage. The material installed is produced with high tenacity polypropylene fibers, has elongations at break between 60 and 80% and develops a tensile strength higher than 20 kN/ m. GEO PP AG 300, as a filter and separator, prevents contamination between the various layers of the bike lane and at the same time ensures a constant and effective drainage of the ground.
Once the works are finished there will be 3 meters wide asphalt bike lane, plus 1.5 m wide natural ground, which will allow both bikers and walkers to pass.
The track runs parallel to the river and ordinary roads.
