AbstractResilient railway transportation networks require sustainable, cost-effective management of service operations to meet future socioeconomic needs and ensure protection of the natural environment. Where transportation corridors traverse unstable terrain, critical rail infrastructure is a risk of damage and presents potential local and national economic, social and environmental challenges. Monitoring unstable slopes and infrastructure at risk is a cost-effective hazard management practice that also provides important geoscience information to help develop appropriate mitigation measures.
