Rockfall netting and dowels were installed at Scotland’s Edinburgh Castle in an effort to reduce risk to tourists, road and rail traffic from loose basalt rocks that form the foundation of this iconic landmark. More at New Civil Engineer (Photo from New Civil Engineer as well).
Thank you to my old colleague at URS Corporation, Andy Messer for sending me a link to these videos. The are from an Austrian company, Trumer Schutzbauten, that provides products and research related to rockfall fences. The first video is presumably to show the hazards of camping next to hazardous rock slopes…good fun! Click through for the videos.
