Tunnel entablatures protected from erosion and unwanted vegetation growth by CC

30 July 2018

In June 2018, Concrete Canvas® GCCM* (CC) was used to provide erosion protection and weed suppression to tunnel entablatures in Département Lozere, Southern France.

The three tunnels involved in the project were situated along a road, tunnelling through hills to preserve the ecology above. Shotcrete was also considered for the project but would have required partial or full road closures while works were carried out. CC was chosen for the installations as a trial to establish its suitability in installations like this one. However, the use of CC prevented road closures, was considerably quicker and easier to install compared to shotcrete and other traditional concreting methods.
