Erosion Control

Retaining Structure

The river bank of the Lupar River in Sri Aman is always being eroded due to the high flow rate of the river especially during tidal flow. Tidal flows occur twice a day and the current is very swift resulting in the constant damage being done to the rive bank.

In an effort to prevent further erosion, retaining structure such as using stones gabion is being used to protect the river bank and the adjacent road from being damaged. Based on experienced, the structure will soon be consumed by the flowing river and the erosion will recur. So, it is just a matter of time before the retaining structure will be able to withstand the force of nature.
