  • ISSN : 1021-2000



This paper details the results of a geotechnical investigation into the instability of a cutting (in the Ecca Series) between Paul Pietersburg and Vryheid on the new Broodsnyersplaas - Richards Bay railway line. The main activating agent for the instability was found to be a saturated groundwater condition and the design of a dewatering system to reduce the phreatic surface is detailed.
