THE PREVENTION AND CORRECTION OF LANDSLIDES ALONG IMPORTANT HIGHWAYS

THIS STUDY DESCRIBES THE MOST COMMON TYPES OF LANDSLIDE IN THE GEOLOGIC FORMATIONS OF SOUTHERN ITALY, AND DISCUSSES INVESTIGATION AND PREVENTION METHODS IN TERMS OF THE STRUCTURAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THESE FORMATIONS. SOME EXAMPLES ARE GIVEN OF THE EFFECTS OF MOTORWAY CONSTRUCTION ON THE STABILITY OF NATURAL SLOPES, AND THE NEED IS EMPHASIZED FOR EXTREME CARE IN THE SELECTION OF PREVENTIVE AND CORRECTIVE METHODS, ESPECIALLY WHERE THE GEOLOGICAL CONSTITUTION IS VERY COMPLEX. MEASURES APPLIED TO OVERCOME CERTAIN DIFFICULT SITUATIONS IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE NAPLES-REGGIO CALABRIA AND NAPLES BARI MOTORWAYS, ARE DESCRIBED AND ILLUSTRATED. /TRRL/
