Abstract

This report presents the findings of a review of a landslide incident (Incident No. 2006/08/0694) that occurred on 3 August 2006 on slope No. 11SW-C/FR319, below the Ebenezer School and Home for the Visually Impaired at No. 131 Pok Fu Lam Road, Pok Fu Lam. The landslide involved the detachment of a mature tree and parts of the masonry wall near the crest of the feature. Debris, with an estimated volume of about 4 m³, and the detached tree were deposited on the slope portion of the feature located at the toe of the masonry wall. No casualties were reported as a result of the incident.

The key objectives of the review were to document the facts about the incident, the site history and pertinent post-failure observations. The scope of the review does not include any ground investigation or detailed diagnosis of the causes of the incident. Recommendations for follow-up actions are presented separately.
