A19 Case Study – HPS5 Rock Armour Filter

On 18th February 2020, the A19 was closed between Chapel Haddlesey and Eggborough, due to collapse following erosion resulting from Storm Dennis. The subsequent travel disruption impacted heavily upon residents and those travelling to and from Selby using the M62. The reconstruction design addressed the risk of future flood damage to the road with the new embankment being protected by rock armour.

Geofabrics HPS5 was successfully installed by Jakto below the rock armour on the River Aire’s flood plain.
