Slope Stabilisation in Marine Environments – The Cambrian Campaign West Wales
DYWIDAG supply a wide range of geotechnical systems used in slope stabilisation. This talk focuses on a series of rock faces stabilised on the west cost of Wales for Network Rail. In order to minimise maintenance and provide a 120-year design life in this marine environment a fully stainless system was required.
