Following a period of exceptional flooding, NGE stepped in to secure the banks of the River Bastan at Barèges in the Hautes-Pyrénées region of France with earthworks and the wall construction. These are very special walls created by combining traditional soil nailed walls with AD/OC® (Self-Draining/Carbon Optimised) walls created using prefabricated concrete slabs instead of the traditional shotcrete.
