That’s as good as it gets.
The new rock-fall fence alongside Bulli Pass is complete, and aside from the re-growth of vegetation, the RMS says this is the finished product.
While it looks loose and wobbly, a spokesman for the RMS says the fence has to have a lot of ‘play’ in order to absorb the impact of falling rocks, and that making it look nice was not a factor in it’s construction.
And while re-growth will certainly soften the appearance of the fence, plants will not be allowed to cover it entirely. “We will carry out routine maintenance to ensure vegetation doesn’t affect the integrity of the rock fall barrier,” he says.
The geological conditions meant the fence had to be erected close to the road,
The next section, due to be put in during another road-closure next year, is expected to be located further away from the road.
