Kuantan-Kerteh Railway Project (KKRP) is a 72 km single track link owned by PETRONAS that provides a container shuttle service for refinery products in the fastgrowing Eastern Corridor petrochemical hub. Upon completion, several failures, including slope stability, erosion and settlement have been noticed along several stretches of the project. As a result, the track is nuder-utilized and the speed of the train had to be lowered well below the design speed. An investigation was initiated by the owner to study this problem and to put forward counteractive actions. This study ultilised the Piezocone Penetration Test, and the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) for the assessment of soil profiling and erosion. In this report, the outcome of the investigation and suggested remedial actions between CH 26+ 325 to CH 27+000 are presented. Additionally, a feasibility study of the suggested remedial actions is also presented.
