Abstract/Summary

This report describes exposures of voids associated with previously described fissures in the Magnesian Limestone beneath a major road (the A 690) in the City of Sunderland. Evidence of recent ground movements and their relevance to the nature and timing of ground movements beneath the road are discussed. In addition to recording observations made during repair work to the road, the report is intended to inform and guide the planning, management and maintenance strategies for the road and surrounding areas.
