CC used as weed suppression and slope protection for roadside embankment near residential area in Japan

27 March 2018

In October 2016, Concrete Canvas® GCCM (CC) was used to provide both slope protection and weed suppression to an embankment adjacent to an expressway in Hokkaido, Japan.

The original design had specified seeding, but the slope is situated close to a residential area, and those living closest to the site claimed that the vegetation would encourage bugs such as mosquitos. Due to the complaints received, the contractor and client were forced to change the specification, and instead chose to use CC.
