Berkley Cut, Wollongong NSW

Client: NSW RTA
Design: Rockfall Drape Mesh
Area: 15,000m²
Completion: 2009

Being Australia’s leading installers of rockfall netting, RIX were chosen by the RTA for this project. RIX brought together a team of structural & geotechnical engineers who worked closely with the RTA to develop an anchor design that was best suited to the budget, program & site geology of the project.

This project consisted of 14,000m2 of a rockfall drape mesh. 2m deep anchors along the crest were used to anchor the mesh in place while weights were fixed to the base of the mesh to prevent it moving and to assist with easy maintenance.
