In June 2017, contractor Bam Nuttall installed Concrete Canvas GCCM as part of the Great Western Electrification Projects’ improvements to drainage structures at Fosse Way, near Sherston.
This followed on from the successful installation of the material on a seperate section in 2014, where CC was used to line an open drainage channel to prevent erosion and reduce cutting saturation, potentially causing land slippage. Since 2014, downstream of the CC installation and beyond a culverted section of drainage, an unlined section of the channel had eroded away. This resulted in a 3m deep scour pocket occurring as water discharged from a headwall into the unlined channel.
