A RETAINING WALL RECONSTRUCTION IN KUTNÁ HORA
Keywords:retaining wall, undermined area, St. Barbara's church, Kutná Hora
AbstractThis paper addresses the reconstruction of a historical stone retaining wall at the busy Kremnická – Táborská road in the town of Kutná Hora. The structure was in very poor condition. There was the danger of an accident involving a wall slide, or even a total collapse of the road structure. The construction site in question is located near the St. Barbara’s Church, in the area of the formerly important but now historical mine Osel. With respect to the possibility of undermining, various geodetic surveys and observations of the surrounding area and rock mass were performed.
