Giant radio galaxies create the well distinguishable class of sources. These sources are characterized with edge-brightened radio lobes with highly collimated radio jets and large linear sizes which make them the largest individual structures in the Universe. They are also known to be hosted by elliptical/disturbed host galaxies and avoid clusters and high galaxy density regions. Because of GRG, large linear sizes lobes extend well beyond the interstellar media and host galaxy halo the

Using our method to extract filamentary structure of the galaxies in our local universe we study whether radio lobe properties in some giant radio galaxies are determined on an interaction of this filament ambient.
