CC used to provide a solution to rainwater infiltration on a slope

25 February 2019

A roadside slope required a crest bench level dish drain to prevent rainwater runoff infiltrating the slope, which could lead to slip.

The client and contractor worked together to find a solution, and specified Concrete Canvas® (CC) to provide a solution over Shotcrete, which would have been more costly, time consuming and would require significant road possession. The use of CC saved time on site and costs for the client, and meant the installation could be carried out with limited lane possession.

The installation of 1200m² of CC5™ was carried out in 2.5 days, despite cold weather and periods of rain and sleet, which would slow or halt works when using conventional concreting solutions.
