Maccaferri protect the Highway in Beausoleil with his barriers RMC :
Since a long time, the city of Beausoleil (06) is facing significant block falls along the A8 Highway, causing accidents, sometimes fatal. Given the very heavy traffic on this highway, which connects Italy to France, protective work began towards the Tunnel of Arme, located between the exit of Monaco and the toll of La Turbie.
The solution proposed by Maccaferri and chosen by the contractor and the designer was focused on a protection kit against rock falls with a Energy capacity of 5000 kJ and a height of 6 m (about 1.3 km of installed barriers).
The protection kit RMC 500 / A Class A MACCAFERRI was chosen for its highest performance in the market in terms of height and residual deformation after impact, but also for their ease of implementation and maintenance. It has also been tested and CE marked according to ETAG 027.
The first phase of construction started in September 2014 and lasted 4 months, with 800 ml of barriers already installed.
In parallel to this project two other category A protection kits were set up on the sectors of SCOBA in La Turbie and DPAC in La Trinité, RMC 200 / A (100 ml) and EPFM 5000 (480 ml).”
