Third mesh at Frances Hodgkins

July 2010

Due to consecutive rock falls on the cliff at the end of the retirement centre building, 17 rock bolts were drilled and a mesh was installed.

Glorious morning in Dunedin
Completed mesh

Second mesh at Frances Hodgkins!

Access: Even with a fragile barrier at the top of the slope, we are still able to find a way to rig safely.

Drillability: The presence of clay at different depths has obliged us to alternate the use of a down hole hammer and drag bits, to drill top anchors 4m deep embedded in 90mm holes, whereas on most jobs of that kind just a hand-drill and 2m holes should do.
