Protecting a bridge slope in Veracruz

erosion-control_macmat_mx

MacMat® R3 04 was used to limit erosion control on a section of the Antón Lizardo-La Piedra road

While the Antón Lizardo-La Piedra road was under development it was discovered that sand material on a bridge slope was exposed to bad weather conditions. We proposed our geomat MacMat® R3 04 to protect the bridge slope avoiding sliding of debris materials and consequently accidents on the road.

Antón Lizardo is a port located in the Mexican state of Veracruz. While part of the Antón Lizardo-La Piedra road was being developed it was found that there was a problem where part of a bridge slope was dangerously exposed to the ravages of bad weather.

We advised that our geomat MacMat® R3 04 combined with a plant call “Betiver” would be best to generate protection for the embankment. It would also create an aesthetic view and promote the regrowth of vegetation.

MacMat® R3 04 offered a way of planting longitudinally to create the main anchoring system for the slope. It is also proven to protect against the erosive processes of air and rain.
