Our markets

Highways, Infrastructure and Rail

Exciting new major road building and improvement projects are taking place or being planned for the future throughout the UK, linking up our regions and supporting economic growth. 
With investment being made to remedy our infrastructure and to tackle the congestion in our cities, towns and villages, we are well positioned to offer unique solutions and innovation needed to spearhead the way.

New road construction


As new developments continue to gather momentum across the UK, contractors are looking for innovative ways to recoup time and money. We can assist in these developments by using our skills to improve site efficiencies.

Our mission is to take industry and client issues and tackle them innovatively, producing products that solve problems, improve standards and lead the industry in product life. 

Combined with a range of compliant products and systems, partnering with our contract division saves time and money while enhancing health and safety.

The UK aims to be net zero emissions by 2050 and 78% of the way by 2035.


The positive impact of geosynthetics

These have an integral role in major building and civil engineering projects – and we have a wealth of technical expertise in this essential sector.

Our geosynthetic products, such as our non-woven geotextiles, are manufactured and tested in accordance with the latest European and international standards and are UKCA, UKNI and CE marked.

They contribute significantly to the performance of highways and other civil engineering projects, particularly through separation and filtration geotextiles.

We are proud of the longevity of our products, reducing the amount of materials used through value engineering.

Essential geogrid solutions

Our geogrid solutions can reduce the thickness of a haul road, compound or working platform, typically by 50%, resulting in substantially reduced construction costs and time.

They improve site health and safety, accelerate construction timescales and reduce the project’s overall environmental impact.

Early engagement means the geogrids can be manufactured to the exact width the contractor needs, suiting the site-specific requirements and creating an even more cost-effective grid.

At Wrekin, we offer two grades of geogrids. For permanent, adoptable roads, we tend to use our premium E’GRID range with a 100-year design life. However, we also offer SX Grid, which has the same impact in terms of thickness reduction but it's properties lend itself perfectly to temporary solutions such as compounds and haul roads.

Haul road expertise

We have a deep understanding of creating initial site compounds, working platforms and haul roads, which we know can have a huge impact on resources for contractors.

Many major infrastructure projects need well-constructed haul roads so that site traffic can operate safely and effectively and which need hard-standing areas for construction equipment, vehicles and site offices.

Haul roads are a practical and necessary cost, yet they are often overlooked and not considered as an area for future improvement. With our expertise in applying solutions that benefit contractors, that's where we can help. We can identify what is needed and provide solutions that are as cost and time-effective as possible.

Network Rail approval for E'GRID

Network Rail

Our E’GRID 3030L Biaxial Geogrid is approved by Network Rail with Certificate of Full Acceptance number PA05/05826. To receive the Certificate of Full Acceptance, E’GRID geogrid underwent a vigorous auditing process and Wrekin Products had to provide justification for the product by demonstrating monetary, safety and performance benefits to Network Rail.

The approved E’GRID 3030L polypropylene biaxial geogrid features a large aperture to reinforce the railway ballast layer. This reduces ballast settlement and extends the time between subsequent maintenance work following ballast renewal. The reinforcing element is a Specific Condition of Network Rail acceptance, which requires CE Marking in accordance with BS EN 13250 for reinforcement materials used in contact with ballast.

The high tensile strength design of our E’GRID geogrid is widely recognised as an effective method of stabilising ballast or soil through reinforcement. The high-strength polymer grid interlocks with the ballast or stone, confining the material to improve load dispersal and limit lateral movement under load.

To receive the Certificate of Full Acceptance, E’GRID geogrid underwent a vigorous auditing process and we had to provide justification for the product by demonstrating monetary, safety and performance benefits to Network Rail. In general, only accepted products are allowed to be used on the rail infrastructure.


Building sustainability into everything we do

With the recently released IPCC report on climate change, there has never been a more critical time to be aware of our impact on the environment - and Geoworks and the wider civil engineering industry takes its responsibilities extremely seriously.

We are committed to working towards minimising the environmental impact of all our activities, from developing products that increase whole-of-life performance, to recycling and reducing waste and emissions wherever we can.

Helping to keep busy Suffolk road moving

Our technical team was contacted in August 2020 by contractor Interserve (now Tilbury Douglas), which made the improvements on behalf of Suffolk County Council, after the groundworker needed assistance mitigating issues caused by soft ground in the sub-formation near where the link road was being constructed – bringing the project to a halt.
