The article presents the results of field studies and laboratory tests of the subsoil of the section of the „Łagiewnicka” route located on the area of so-called “White Seas”  in Kraków-Łagiewniki. The analysed samples come from the layer of anthropogenic soils being the result of the operation of the Solvay Sodium Plant in the 20th century. The results of the geotechnical and land-surveying studies served as the basis for developing a numerical model to determine the pressure on the walls of the planned tunnel and the horizontal thrust in the planned excavation. Besides, the study and test results were used to perform an analysis of the excavation’s stability and to check the impact of the sheet pile on land deformations near the John Paul II Centre in Kraków.
Key words: Łagiewnicka Route / slope stability / MCC model
