In January 2014, a GCCM was used to remediate a section of slope adjacent to Cunningham Highway in Aratula, Queensland. The slope had suffered erosion caused by insufficient drainage. A solution was needed to protect the slope from further damage, as threatened to destabilise the adjacent road. Shotcrete had been considered to line the slope, but roadside barriers created issues with site access. The equipment and rebound associated with shotcrete could also cause delays and damage to the vehicular traffic using the road.
