Initial situation

La Marina Avenue is the most important transit road in the city of Cartagena in the Valparaiso Region. Regularly occurring landslides and rockfalls affected the safety of users and generated frequent interruptions especially after rain.

Description

After field evaluation and engineering design, Geobrugg determined TECCO® GREEN as ideal erosion control system.

The slope stabilization in La Marina Avenue is one of the emblematic works of the Municipality of Cartagena, a  city with prominent cultural heritage.
