Abstract [en]

Some experiences of construction methods for improving and constructing road and railroad embankments on peat ground in Sweden are presented. Many different construction methods have been used in Sweden during the last 15 years for the improvement and new construction of roads on peat ground. The choice of construction method is often based on tradition and previous experience in the region. In general, the construction and improvement of roads and railroads on peat ground works well. However, the construction methods may lead to expensive and oversized design or to unnecessarily large maintenance needs and costs for many years.
