CC used to replace concrete block system for channel lining

18 March 2019

In January 2018, CC was chosen as a channel lining solution for a channel originally part-lined with a concrete block system. The unlined channel section had eroded, undermining the concrete block system.

Sangbags were placed over the concrete block system and CC installed along the full length of the channel. Keeping the existing system in place minimised required groundworks and mitigated unnecessary works as site access was limited.

Batched rolls of CC8™ material were specified for this project, allowing easy on-site transportation as batched rolls are man-portable.
