Strengthening the dike at Großenhain

The dikes of the Großen Röder river and the Röderneugraben canal were severely damaged in the flood of September 2011 in the areas surrounding the Saxon town of Großenhain.


Shortly afterwards, restoration or strengthening works began on the dikes. For this, a structurally effective Mixed-in-Place inner seal was introduced with adjusted supports. In order to complete the works on schedule, 24 hour operations were implemented even throughout the winter months.
