A residential site cut in Melbourne that uncovered significant rocks. This site was 100% cut.
Usually cut and fill to minimize material movement is best. This job due to the sloping site 100% cut was needed.
This house excavation was done around the rocks, until they were broken and removed. A significant retaining wall is to be built down both sides of the block.
Rock floaters like this are not uncommon in the North and West of Melbourne. Unlike a rock shelf, these rocks can generally be broken or removed without significant time delays.
