Gabion box has the following positive advantages:
1.Cost effective and environmentally friendly alternative to concrete system.
2.The Gabion structure blends easily and harmoniously with natural surroundings.
3.Simple and speedy installation, using natural or quarried stones obtained locally.
4.Ability to deform without cracking allowing the structure to withstand any unpredictable movement or settlement without loss or stability.
5.Higher resistance to natural forces due to better tensile strength.
6.Majority of manpower need not to be skilled and speed at which the work is carried out is unparalleled in civil engineering, besides making it cost effective.
7.Easy of repair to any damaged cages, with minimal expense.
8.The use of Gabions as retaining structures provides a low cost alternative to concrete or masonry retaining walls.
