The project entailed the remediation of the existing rock cut slopes and concrete catch-walls in the
Huis River Pass on Route 62 between Ladismith and Calitzdorp.
The work included the barring down of potentially unstable material from the existing cut slopes and
the removal of the rock build-up behind the catch-walls – some 23000m 3 in total. Extensive use was
made of draped mesh to mitigate against the danger of falling rocks to the road user as well as the
introduction of restraining mesh and the selective installation of rock bolts.
