This report presents the findings of a detailed study of a landslide incident (GEO Incident No. 2001/09/0091), which was reported to GEO on 2 September 2001, on a fill slope and the hillside immediately below Kwun Ping Road about 600 m north of its junction with Shatin Pass Road, north of Tsz Wan Shan. The landslide involved a failure volume of about 20 m3. A section of the road verge collapsed with the landslide undermining a narrow portion of the road pavement. No casualties were reported as a result of the failure and no road closure was required.

The key objectives of the detailed study were to document the facts about the landslide, present relevant background information and establish the probable causes of the incident. Recommendations for follow up actions are reported separately.
