INVESTIGATION INTO EROSION AND SLOPE FAILURE

CAUSED BY WAVE ACTION AT AMANZIMTOTI


The site is located in Amanzimtoti in KwaZulu – Natal adjacent to the Amanazimtoti River.  A complete failure of approximately 350m of the railway embankment carrying the South Bound rail line occurred on Thursday 11th December 2012 after torrential rains and subsequent flooding of the Amanzimtoti River resulted in the derailment of three of the electric units and their subsequent collapse into the river at the foot of the embankment.
