The behaviour of embankments can be unpredictable due to changing soil mechanics, weather and use.
This means that embankments are liable to move unless properly understood and retained where necessary. The risk is that an embankment could fail meaning train lines, highways and the earth or water retained by the embankment could potentially be subjected to widespread damage requiring investment of time and money to fix.
Properly designed and maintained embankments however can be an effective solution to assist in the construction and management of transport links, creating usable land and damming of bodies of water.
