It is massive fill of overburden rocks between partially worked out open pit mines ČSA and Šverma. The maximal height of the fill is 170 m from coal seam floor to present level. The total length of transferred underground utilities reached about 11 km 30 years ago, the length of the fill reached about 5 km. The paper briefly summarises the history of Ervěnice corridor, the progress of consolidation from 1984 to these days and the prognosis of future consolidation of the corridor in future.
