Abstract: River scour is a recognised threat to many bridge structures in the form of the undermining of structural foundations. The size and scale of the problem varies much like the hydrology and topography of each structure’s location.

Tried, tested and traditional methods of preventing scour are feasible at locations with available area and ease of access. However many sites are remote with restricted access possibilities, so there was a need to research and develop a process/ technique to combat and protect structures from scour at remote sites.

Keywords: durability, low maintenance, scour solution, academic research, recycled plastic sheet piling, Guadua Bamboo, longevity, renewable/sustainable, low carbon footprint
