Thus one should the effects of these changes and to be sure about the safety of the slopes. Only with this knowledge changes should be carried out in order to be able to assess their impact on people and the surrounding area. Excavation pits are being placed deeper and and closer to neighboring structures, and must therefore be handled by engineers.
