Report of the Damage on the Luangwa Bridge-Feira Boma Road (D145) in Lusaka District
On February 13, 2017, the Luangwa Bridge to Feira Boma Road (D145) was reported to have suffered damage at Chainage 3+200 from the Great East Road (T004) Junction, when a section of a hill detached, with a concomitant lateral earth mass displacement. The unstable hill mass stretches approximately 150 metres along the road. The resultant stresses manifested in the form of heaving of the road prism, over approximately 100 metres. This slope failure led to the closure of the road in order to protect the safety of road users.
