Extreme weather conditions causes landslide at Parramatta railway station
2nd July 2013
The wettest June in six years has caused an embankment to collapse at Harris Park railway station in Sydney. The landslide occurred on Sunday 30th June with a mass of soil and debris falling onto the platform and tracks. Thankfully no one was hurt in the landslip, however this substantial slope failure will now cause significant delays to commuters over the next week while the embankment wall is fixed and newly reinforced.

At itmsoil we are acknowledged experts in monitoring to prevent landslides and we have worked on numerous related projects across the globe. In response to increasing need, we designed the itmsoil Slope Failure System, a semi-permanent, automated monitoring system, designed to alert rail engineers of impending slope failure in cuttings and on embankments.
If you would like to discuss our slope stability capabilities further please contact Peter Scott, Projects Coordinator (0) 8 9284 0244.
