This GEO Report consists of two Landslide Study Reports on the investigation of selected slope failures that occurred in 1999. The investigations were carried out by Fugro Maunsell Scott Wilson Joint Venture (FMSW) for the Geotechnical Engineering Office as part of the 1999 Landslide Investigation Consultancy.
Section 1 of the report presents the findings of a detailed study of a landslide that occurred in quasi-natural terrain, below an electricity pylon above Kap Lung, Shek Kong, following the rainstorm of 22 to 24 August 1999. Debris from the landslide entered a natural drainage line and was transported approximately 650 m downslope. There were no casualties as a result of the landslide.
Section 2 of the report presents the findings of a detailed study of two landslides (GEO Incident No. HK 99/8/11) which occurred on 23 August 1999 in the hillside below the Vocational Training Council (VTC) Pokfulam Skills Centre on Pokfulam Road. Debris from the landslides, estimated at 100 m3 and 200 m3 respectively, was channelised in an ephemeral drainage line and reached Victoria Road, approximately 200 m west of the VTC facility on plan. No casualties were reported as a result of the incident.
