CC used as temporary slope protection measure following road and wall collapse in Hungary

20 December 2017

In March 2017, Concrete Canvas® GCCM* (CC) was used to provide temporary protection of a slope during the reconstruction of a collapsed retaining wall at Hámori lake, Miskolc, Hungary.

A 30m section of the outer part of a road slipped, along with its supporting wall on a hillside. Although a wider part of the road remained intact there was a serious risk of further slip. The road couldn’t be closed for works to be carried out, and one lane had to be available to traffic throughout the works. The slipped section was excavated until the wall construction but the resulting temporary slope had to be protected against rain and debounce while the supporting wall was being built.
