The newly constructed culvert installed within the Greatham Beck tidal stream in Hartlepool, UK required additional protection to extend its working life and provide erosion protection.
In August 2017, Concrete Canvas® was used to line a drainage channel at a West London football club’s training ground. The aim was to prevent erosion and silt generation by improving the existing channel, which was prone to blockages and clogging drains nearby. By doing this, pitch and land drainage capacity would also be improved.
The channel in question carries water from an outfall pipe to a silt trap before entering the Jubilee Lake in Royal Wootton Bassett, Wiltshire, UK.
The original concrete block system was used to line part of the channel. The unlined section had eroded, undermining the system and creating a 3m deep scour hole. Click below to find out more about the project.
