Geology: Moderately to highly weathered Claystone/Shale & Sandstone/Siltstone. With overburden of clayey silt with gravels and boulders.

Inclination of the slope: 50° to 60°

Description

Work started with drilling for anchors in April 2021 and was completed with installing a GBE-2000A rockfall barrier in June 2021.
