Abstract

An unstable slope having few houses which were under distress was studied to arrive at suitable control measures. The slope has undergone subsidence at the road level and there are few houses down the road level which have developed major cracks. The study was focused on identification of causes, assessment of slope stability and suggestions for control measures. The study involved geological and geotechnical investigations, slope stability analysis and monitoring of movements. The paper highlights the field observations and results of the study.
