In March 2016, Concrete Canvas® GCCM (CC) was used to line a road-side drainage channel. The channel was over 1500m long, and in need of erosion protection to reduce the risk of flooding on the road. The works were carried out by Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK on behalf of Gwynedd Council as part of a £22m Welsh Government project to improve safety and flood risks on a 2.2km stretch of the A55 between the Tai’r Meibion property and the Abergwyngregyn interchange.
The A55 is the main North Wales coastal route and part of Euroroute E22 Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T). It is also an important link road for local towns and communities, providing the main connection to the A470 for the North-South and North-Mid Wales link. As a result, it is incredibly important for this road to be well maintained and in good working order.
