    Furthermore, when ballast degradation reaches a high level (fouled ballast), this can compromise the mechanical performance of the track and accelerate degradation of geometry. In addition, frequent maintenance (tamping), needed to restore track geometry, contributes significantly to ballast degradation, leading to a vicious circle ( 4 ).
