Destructive power of rockfalls in a highly graphic manner

A dangerous rockslide occurred on a road in Vietnam’s Thai Nguyen Province on May 26, 2022.

The event ‘illustrates the destructive power of rockfalls in a highly graphic manner,’ said landslides expert Dr. Dave Petley.

“I have written frequently about the dangers associated with poor quality road construction in mountainous areas, which often leaves steep cut slopes prone to landslides and rockfalls. Over the years I have documented numerous examples of tragedies that have occurred as a result. Sadly, poor construction approaches continue, especially in countries such as Nepal and India.”1
