Also stabilize unstable boulders those most at risk of detachment by 1,400 square meters of high strength metallic membranes anchored to the rock and eventually plant will be a restoration of the area with 3,888 units of native species to improve stability soil.
During the months of May, June and July are installed dynamic barrier 690 meters, and has required the intervention of a helicopter for lifting and placement of posts that make the same, and the 351 square meters of flexible dams antidetritus in existing gullies on the slope.
The stabilization of loose blocks at risk of detachment by high strength metal membranes is scheduled for September and October, a performance that require the helicopter to transport intervention meshes.
Finally, during the months of October and November will be held plantations.
