Canterbury Earthquake Hill Soil Stabilisation - Vital Chemical


Canterbury’s 2010/2011 earthquakes caused significant land damage in the Port Hills. Remediation projects were undertaken throughout to ensure public safety. “The Brae” was one of the cornerstone projects. 

The area was identified as at risk of mass movement during a significant future seismic or rainfall event, with the potential for loss of property, damage, injury or death. 

The decision was made to “de-load” the slope by excavating 12,000m3 of surplus loess and   creating a stabilised engineered final land form.
