Heavily eroded Scottish 'Kirk Burn' culvert repaired using CC8

06 December 2017

In August 2017, Concrete Canvas® GCCM* (CC) was used to remediate a dilapidated culvert in Laurencekirk, Scotland.

The original corrugated steel culvert, known as the Kirk Burn culvert, was 1.8m in diameter and had sustained significant degradation and erosion due to heavy water flows and abrasion. As a result, the existing 25mm bitumen coating inside the pipe had broken down through constant flow erosion and weathering.

Briggs Building Ltd, who had successfully installed the material for a similar application with BEAR Scotland the previous year in Newtonhill, was appointed to carry out the remediation works at the Kirk Burn culvert for Transport Scotland, with Consultation Services provided by BEAR Scotland.
