CC used to remediate heavily corroded culvert in West Sussex, UK

05 January 2018

In September 2017, Concrete Canvas® GCCM* (CC) was used to line a culvert in Cooks Bridge, Midhurst, West Sussex.

The  culvert  was  situated  under  a  highway, and  provides  the  only  passage  under  the  road  for  the  stream;  however, the  existing  corrugated  steel  culvert  had  corroded  over  time,  in  part  due  to  the  abrasion  from  sediment  and  gravel transported along the channel in high flow conditions.

The flow of water started to erode the soil beneath the structure, affecting the long-term performance of the culvert. CC was specified to provide scour protection to the culvert and increase the working life of the structure.

The works were carried out by Suttle Projects for Igroup/Balfour Beatty Living Places/West Sussex County Council.
