Sustain' Magazine;2006, Vol. 7 Issue 6, p36
The article provides information on the infrastructure projects in Japan that are incorporating geosynthetics in geotechnical engineering. The Tomei-Meishin Expressway project in the Chubu region between Tokyo and Osaka, proposed for Shizuoka prefecture by the Japanese Highways Department is one such project. The project's client, NEXCO Shizuoka, required the construction of a run-off pond to contain potential overspill during the possible event of flooding along one of the sections of the project. The water from the mountain overlooking the No. 2 Tomei-Shizuoka Tunnel will pass through the Japanese Alps.
