Embankments perform an important function in the efficient operation of an infrastructure network, whether it is railway, highway or waterway, and it is essential that they be recognised accordingly within the asset management policy. This fully updated second edition presents vital information for infrastructure owners, designers, contractors and maintenance managers. It provides guidance on the management, condition appraisal and repair of infrastructure cuttings.

This guide is based on a detailed review of published literature and infrastructure owner's procedures, consultation with experts and practitioners within the field, and includes case studies demonstrating good practice. It addresses technical issues in design, repair and maintenance, and is published as an enabling document to promote the managerial and engineering requirements of infrastructure embankments.
