In-Place inclinometers on ground ready to install in borehole

Linear Infrastructure – Slope Stability

A major road is located at the top of a significant slope which runs down to a river in the bottom of the valley (location classified).

The stability of the slope has historically been of concern and has been monitored manually for several years.

The existing monitoring has shown increased movement associated with increased rainfall over the years and therefore it was decided to improve and automate the monitoring of the slope.

The project represents classical slope stability monitoring where instruments were installed to identify the location of the slip plane and on the surface to identify any top layer instability.

QJ Inclinometer Casing was installed to allow the installation of In-Place Inclinometers which were installed to identify the location of the sub-surface slip plane within the slope.
