HCMC – A team of Japanese experts has made a site visit to the area affected by a deadly landslide in Dalat at the invitation of local authorities.
The landslide, which led a retaining wall to collapse, occurred at 36 Hoang Hoa Tham alley in Ward 10, Dalat City in June 29, killing two people.
Accompanied by Vice Chairman Nguyen Van Son and other relevant authorities from Dalat City, the experts from Kawasaki Geological Engineering Joint Stock Company surveyed the area where the retaining wall collapsed.
They examined the section under the retaining wall and collected images for further analysis.
Le Ngoc An, an engineer from Kawasaki Geological Engineering Joint Stock Company, said that the company had previously provided consultation on a landslide incident on Nguyen Van Troi Street in Dalat in April 2017.
In addition to assessing the landslide at 36 Hoang Hoa Tham alley, the experts visited other locations in the Dalat area. Following the visits, the experts will provide advice to local authorities on measures to prevent landslides during the rainy season.
The experts’ agenda also includes evaluating areas prone to landslides along Khe Sanh and Dang Thai Than streets.
The remaining part of the retaining wall at 36 Hoang Hoa Tham alley has been dismantled, reducing risks for residents in the affected vicinity.
