ROCK FALL MESH DRAPES & ROCK FALL BARRIERS
CLIENT: Roads and Maritime Services (RMS)
LOCATION: Mooney Mooney, NSW
DESIGN: Shotcrete, Spot Bolting, Rope Access
Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) contracted RIX Asset Maintenance to undertake the installation of shotcrete, spot bolts and 12,000m2 of Geobrugg Deltax Drape along with 450m of Geobrugg T010 Rock Fall fence which RAM offered as an upgraded fully engineered and certified alternative to the traditional rock fall fence.
RAM undertook all spot bolting with man portable drilling equipment up to heights of 50m by IRATA rope access tradespeople and EWP.
In order to create cost efficiencies and less disruption to the 8,000 cars an hour on the motorway RAM installed a construction rock fall fence which enabled 70% of works to be completed on day shift and without traffic management.
