ABSTRACT:
The paper contains analysis of the anti-erosion system in the road gully in Wielkopole, Lublin Upland. The solution implemented in the gully’s bottom is effective against line erosion – there is no gully deepening. Lack of protection of slopes results in an intense earthmass movements. At the brim zone of the gully suffosion processes occur leading to the gully widening. The eroded material is accumulated on the road and colmatage drainage system of voivodship road no. 842, what is dangerous to traffic and generates expenses. That is why anti-erosion systems should be implemented comprehensively, protecting both the slopes and the bottom of gullies. Projects of such systems should be consulted with specialist.
