Slope instabilities – commonly triggered by rainfall – pose a geotechnical risk causing disruption to transport routes and incur significant financial resources. This article details laboratory, ground and remote sensing investigations carried out by Queen’s University Belfast and Transport Northern Ireland (TNI) to characterise and monitor slope instability on two higher risk infrastructure slopes in Northern Ireland. The research is used to update a noninvasive risk assessment model of slopes across the country’s road network to direct resources for future investigation.
