In response to six landslips which occurred on Network Rail infrastructure between June 2012 and February 2013, the UK Government's Rail Accident Investigation Branch undertook a class investigation into earthwork issues related to land neighbouring the railway and management of earthwork related risk during adverse weather.

The report for this investigation was published in April 2014 and the evening's talk will review the landslips presented in the report and highlight the technical issues and lessons for infrastructure which have arisen from the investigation. Simon Abbot will provide a summary of Network Rail's actions to address the issues identified in the report.
