Description of the service provided

The service in question was provided on the request of RFI, in response to rockfalls which had affected the “La Fiora” zone at Terracina (Latina) over time. Since these events also affected the railway line, they constituted a serious risk to people and property. To allow the preparation of a suitable project for the safety upgrading of the area, thorough geological and geotechnical surveys were performed; an on-site inspection was performed with detachment of the obviously precarious portions of rock; a laser scanner survey was performed; a thermographic survey was performed; and a trajectory plotting analysis was performed, to identify the possible areas at risk of being struck by any detached or remobilised portions of stone, and to assess the types of energy involved and enable the identification of an operating solution.
