Immediate intervention with Maccaferri products on a landslide near Botanical Garden in Tirana
Maccaferri’s products prevent damages caused by a potential landslide near Tirana Botanical Garden.
The heavy rainfalls provided the collapse of the temporary structures. An abandoned building site creates the condition for a landslide which could affect a populated area by forcing the people to leave own house for some days.
In order to avoid further damages the Civil Emergency Department of the area worked to find a quick and an appropriate solution. Maccaferri’s one was selected between a wide range of other competitive solutions.
On the bottom of the retaining structure was built a gabion wall (8x9m). The dimensions are justified by the weight of the slope, the weight of the buildings above on the hill and the traffic loads on the road exactly next to the wall. In addition to its retaining ability the gabion wall has an excellent drainage quality which can reduce hydraulic pressure. Over gabion wall, the structure was completed with GreenTerramesh reinforced with Geogrid
