Bass Coast Local News:

Repairs on landslip at Glen Alvie Road on the way.

By Portal Admin - 14th September 2019 - Back to News

Emergency repair work has begun on the large landslip that occurred on Glen Alvie Road on 9 August, following significant rainfall.

Work is expected to take up to four weeks to complete, subject to favourable weather conditions.

The works will involve the construction of a retaining wall, placement and compaction of structural fill, road pavement construction and sealing works.

Bass Coast Shire Council Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari said because the landslip impacts an important rural link road, repairing it quickly was of high importance.

"It is fantastic to see such a quick response, with work already started on repairing the landslip," Cr Tessari said.

"Glen Alvie Road is an important rural road and services public commuters, agricultural and dairy vehicles and school buses, however due to the landslip, is currently closed.

"We appreciate that these works present an inconvenience to the public and we ask for their patience during these times."
