Case Study – Soft Shoulder Reinforcement
Installed: December 2016
Location: Convair Drive, Toronto, Ontario
Size: 200 m2
Customer: GTAA-Greater Toronto Airport Authority
Ecoraster E50 was installed as soft shoulder reinforcement along a section of Convair Drive.
Ecoraster was placed 6 grid sections wide along the asphalt edge of the newly installed road and filled with clear angular ¼” gravel.
In this application, Ecoraster acts as the first level of infiltration for the run off from the road. Ecoraster also protects the asphalt edge and eliminates the height differential between the road and the shoulder, providing additional safety for the drivers. The asphalt road edge is protected from the degradation that is commonly found on roads with soft shoulders.
