Geology

The sandstone columns of the Pirambóia formation are based on extremely alterable lamitos. With the process of altering instabilities occur at these columns of a height up to 35 meters.

Initial situation

The BR 116 is an important road connecting South and North Brazil. At km 108, in the state of Santa Catarina, there is a stretch of a mountain range: high sandstone sections have conditioned instabilities of rock blocks since the road was built, with a sad history of accidents and interruptions of the road. In 2017, the concessionaire Arteris started the slope stabilization works to mitigate the risks to the highway.

Description

30.000 m² of slopes with rockfall potential were stabilized with SPIDER® System.
