ABSTRACT
The beginning of the paper presents certain general aspects of the instability phenomena occurring with high frequency on large areas of Romania. Further on, the paper analyses, from a geological and geotechnical point of view, the nature and causes of an instability phenomenon which affected the earthworks of a county road in western Romania. The final part of the paper shows the technical solution applied to stabilize the instability and strengthen the earthworks of the respective road.

Keywords: instability phenomenon, earthworks, road, foundation, strengthen, to stabilize
