The earth anchors where installed, tested and certified by AR+R. Access was gained via the boardwalk itself and site conditions highlighted the ease with which Drive anchors can be installed in difficult to reach places. Handheld hydraulic power tools were utilised to install the ground anchors on the steep slopes of the site. Attaining the 6m installation depth was no problem.
