English term or phrase:soil retaining structure
This is from a survey about Railway Protection against risks from adjacent construction sites.
Monitoring of water-table, movement of soil retaining structure, settlement at road surface and condition of tunnel may be required.
Does the soil retain the structure or does the structure retain the soil? What is the German term please?
