Project Description

Overview

Marine and Civil solutions were asked to stabilise a failed bank that was approximately 12 meters wide and 10 meters high.

Challenges

The existing bank was retaining a main road and due to the slip, the road has been reduced to one lane causing additional traffic and risks of collisions.

In order to restore the failed bank all loose and failed materials had to be excavated and moved off site, suitable backfill material wrapped in Geogrid was then brought on site and used to replace the material at specific intervals.

Deltalok bags were then used to create a new face to the newly installed bank
