Debris Flow Barrier stops falling boulders and loose debris at KL-Karak Highway


Maccaferri debris flow barrier protects against risk of landslide

Maccaferri debris flow barriers has been installed to protect the KM 52.4 road between Lentang and Bukit Tinggi from landslides.

Recently during a heavy down pour, at KM 52.4 excess water carried mud and pieces of wood from the hill down to the road raising concerns about the security of users. Investigators found that the landslide was not due to a slope failure but excess water from the catchment area.

The client has now decided to engage us to provide our barriers because they have been found to be most suitable to protect against situations like this.

Our barriers are designed to catch falling boulders, loose debris, and soil before any of it reaches the expressway. A barrier totaling 30 meters in length and five meters in height was supplied and installed at the affected area. The project took approximately three months to complete.

The Kuala Lumpur-Karak Expressway also known as Karak Highway is a 60 km controlled-access highway in Malaysia which connects the capital city of Kuala Lumpur to the town of Karak in Pahang. It incorporates a twin tunnel at Genting Sempah, near one of Malaysia’s famous highland resorts, Genting Highlands. Like many other highland roads, the Kuala Lumpur-Karak Expressway often faces risks of landslides especially during rainy season.
