A team of NBRO scientists investigated the recent cut slope failure on the stretch of the Colombo Kandy road, that by passes the Kegalle town. About 10 - 12 m high near vertical cut slopes had been failed during the torrential rain that poured in Kegalle during the last week. Immediate actions had been taken to close this stretch of the road, for traffic, on the night of November 27, 2014, when the failures were initiated.
