A 50 acre intermodal freight terminal known as East Midlands Gateway can accommodate up to 16 large freight trains daily as well as HGV parking and container storage and is located at the M1/M42 junction. Due to the topography of the site the rail connection had to include an embankment. Owing to its steep slopes, erosion control was needed for the long term erosion protection. ABG Erosamat 3/20Z 500 turf reinforcement was selected for erosion protection of the embankment and pinned in place in accordance with the ABG pnning design. Erosamat provides a robust root protection system.
