    Abstract

    The interaction between problematic geology and environmental variables along the Antrim Coast Road results in frequent instances of geotechnical instability. During such instances of instability, mudslide debris encroaches on the carriageway posing a hazard to motorists, causing lengthily tailbacks. This paper examines some of the geotechnical and spatial analysis techniques currently being implemented to monitor slope stability on this key transport route.
