Slope instability was noted on the ring road project on Quarry Hill. Slope movements occurred above a section of approx 350 feet of the roadway, and a failure tension crack had developed 100 feet above the road platform. The area has the typical irregular block-strewn appearance of an old landslide area. Deep crevices appeared in the surface. Many of the blocks are perched on others in relatively unstable positions.
