Abstract

When the design, construction and maintenance of mountain roads are required to accommodate landslides and difficult ground conditions, decisions need to be made based on the assessment of risk. Risk management requires a balance to be struck between acceptable risk of blockage, damage or loss and affordable cost of risk reduction. However, before these decisions can be made, an assessment of landslide susceptibility and hazard is usually required.
