An existing road had several small failures and the gabion wall was being compromised, resulting in road closure. Using geosynthetic reinforced soil (GRS), the wall was extended and the road rebuilt. As a safety precaution, traffic control was in place on the highway below the worksite. To ensure worker safety, our certified fall prevention system was put in place once the wall height exceeded 1.5m. The final wall height was approximately 5m.
