The use of a geotextile in order to protect the slope from erosion. This geotextile has openings which allow plants to grow, but do not permit the soil to erode even during storms. (Egnatia road, Greece).
Metallic structures which are anchored to the rock slope, help to avoid the deterioration of the slope and the fall of rocks on the pavement. It is especially used for steep slopes.(Egnatia Road, Greece).
These are the trusses which are used for the protection of the slope.

Geohives: These are used for the construction of slopes while aiding the growth of plants. (Egnatia Road, Greece).
A high slope. In the bottom you can see the geohives while on the top you can see workers installing a geotextile.
A closer look to the hives. This hives will later be planted.
