DuraForce Heavy Weight Geotextile
Coastal Pathway is a joint project between Christchurch City Council and Christchurch Coastal Pathway Group. It will run from Ferrymead Bridge to Scarborough Beach when completed – a total of 6.5km, with a 4m wide shared pathway.
A heavyweight geotextile was required to protect the seawall and backfill from erosion caused by the tidal waves. DuraForce 1200c and TerraTex 900H were selected for this project. Due to a lot of heavy wash from the waves and the placement of very large rock it is critical to overlap the geotextile so it does not separate and allow for the fines to wash out of the gaps.
Products used in this Project
TerraTex is a range of geotextiles are manufactured using today’s most advanced technology and are specially designed for the harsh conditions found in coastal and shoreline areas.
