Huge rockfall protection barrier in Switzerland

A unique solution in Beauregard

11 July 2022

The cantonal road to Val d’Anniviers (Valais) and the industrial area below are endangered by frequent rockfalls. To protect the seven-meter-wide roadway, both lanes were covered with netting.

We installed a rockfall protection system with an energy absorption of 2000 kJ. The topography and the need to ensure a lightroom profile, especially in the event of rockfall, required a unique solution: the posts are between 10.0 and 13.5 meters long.
