Next to the Givat Aliya beach in Jaffa, there is a slope located on the coastline which is partly build of crumbled limestone (kurkar) rock and partly of unsupervised filling materials. The slope’s incline is steep, reaching up to 80°.
Due to the stability problem of the steep slope and the need to increase the coastal strip for safe movement, it was decided to reinforce the steep slope with an active system that will prevent the rock blocks’ movement.
The solution proposed included the installation of variable-length bolts to stabilize the slope, an RFN system (Rock Fall Netting protection) to prevent rock fall and reinforcement cables for the entire system.
