Gabion Baskets and Gabion Walls

rock armouring with gabion baskets, mangrove protection, erosion protection,

Clients and engineers who prefer the look  of gabion baskets and gabion walls for rock armouring as a form of erosion control, have turned to  Gold Coast Barges to get the job done right.

Below are photos of a recent project in the Nerang River where the engineer has specified and designed a system of gabion baskets to minimise the effects of tide and wake.

 It is a  very busy area in the river with skiiing, jet skis  and recreational boating, the banks were suffering and this project was put into place to correct the issue.
