Joe Wagner Group was engaged to repair batters that had experienced erosion and environmental degradation using Concrete Canvas.
- Trimming scoured batters
- Trenching at top of slope
- Installation of 2,400m concrete canvas over a 250m stretch of highway
We utilised new technology for this project, employing concrete canvas which allowed us to install the slope protection quickly with minimal waste or environmental impact.
The concrete canvas sheeting was pinned into a trench at the top of the 7m high slope; bolted into existing concrete slab at the base of the road; and screwed in every 200mm. Saturation with our water truck allowed the concrete to cure and set.
This project required rope access for safely working at heights. Work was undertaken under traffic with minimal disruption to traffic. There were no LTIs.
