Rail Embankment Stabilization Needs on the Hudson Bay Railway

Hudson Bay Railway (HBR) is a key trade link that connects domestic origins and destinations in Canada and the United States with the export origins and destinations in Europe through the Port of Churchill. Over the last 80 years, the deterioration of the HBR embankment due to thawing discontinuous permafrost, combined with poor geotechnical properties of the muskeg soil has caused significant challenges in maintaining the HBR line. Warming climate has further added to this challenge, causing major concern for the owner of the line, Omnitrax.
