Situation

In 2012 following a period of havy rainfall a landslide blocked the road tunnel portal (also known as Horn Hill Tunnel), killing two people.

Description

Parson Brinckerhoff used the knowledge of Geobrugg to design a soil nailed solution. In total 4700 m² of TECCO® G65/3 and 800 system spike plates were used to complete the project. TECCO® SYSTEM³ was selected as it provided the option of optimisation of nail spacing which on a projecrt of this scale allowed for significant cost and time savings.
