keyboard_arrow_downFlood protection at King Shaka International Airport

A channel lined with Technicrete’s Armorflex specially engineered concrete erosion-protection blocks has solved a seasonal flooding problem at KwaZulu-Natal’s King Shaka International Airport – and at the same time has saved sand dunes from erosion as well as enabling the regrowth of natural vegetation. The combined engineering-environmental solution to the recurring flooding problem involved the construction of a 100m-long artificial watercourse to divert storm water away from the airport’s eastern boundary.
