The slope protection works along Masterson Avenue right below Pryce Plaza in Cagayan de Oro City continue with installation of high-tensile steel wire mesh now observed.
The works are just timely as continuous rains have softened the now bare slope.
You can observe the steel net being installed along a 50-meter stretch.
These nets will still be stretched towards the edge of the slope along the road.
Accordingly, these will protect motorists against rock fall and slope instability especially during incidents of heavy rain.
You can also observe there are two layers.
This will also help in erosion control. Note the perimeter fence of Pryce Plaza.
This will also mitigate landslides which have occurred in the area before.
You can see the exposed unstable slope after the excavation. The contractor must work round-the-clock as bad weather may further delay the project.
Hopefully, this will be finished soon.
