The Tensar TW1 System was developed as an alternative to traditional retaining wall options and has been used extensively in Europe and elsewhere internationally. The system has very recently been introduced into the South African market through Kaytech Engineered Fabrics. This article discusses the use of the system on a major road upgrade contract in South Africa, Ballito Drive, which was one of the first and largest applications of the system locally to date. Project engineers, SMEC South Africa, were closely involved in the detailed design of the system and realised a number of cost benefi ts on the project by using the Tensar TW1 system.
