Four Thousand Meters of Safety for Abacus

Abcas were employed by North Devon Council to undertake a full slope stabilisation project in Ilfracombe harbour as part of a redevelopment scheme providing new fishing stores below the slope.

Over 4000m2 of slope was cleared of vegetation and mature trees felled by Abcas arborists prior to rock scaling.

A top hammer drill attached to a long reach telescopic boom was used to install many of the 700+ stainless steel anchors installed in the slope. PVC coated rock netting, rock bolts and cables were installed to ensure the safety of those using the area below.
