Avalanche mitigation bunds

Using geogrids to create a steep-sided earth mass to mitigate rockfall risk

Constructing steep-sided rockfall mitigation bunds and avalanche dams is a common alternative to arrest netting. Reducing the risk to buildings and motorists as development moves into mountainous regions.

The dead weight of a reinforced soil bund can absorb the impact of larger boulders during a rockfall. The geometry can be suited to effectively dam large volumes of debris or snow avalanches, improving safety and access on mountain roads.
