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.
