The Bireh-Kobayat road is crossing a major and historic landslide area. This area is extending 75m in length. After each rainy season the landslide is activated affecting the road and infrastructure alignment and levels and creating major safety hazards. In order to solve this problem permanently, Int’l IGM recommended to first install a deep drainage trench parallel to the road and towards the uphill side. Then a slope stabilization system was implemented consisting of three rows of 60cm diameter permanent piles battered and nailed to the stable layer, spaced 3m and connected by a slab-on grade.
