Landslide - Moreton Park Rd, Menangle
Posted on: 05.01.2017
Council wishes to advise that there is currently a landslide on Morton Park Rd, Menangle at the approach to the Northern Bridge over the Freeway that has required Council to close part of the road shoulder so that further investigations can be undertaken.
The cause of the landslide is currently unknown although it is possible that the storm event in June may have contributed. However, due to the location of the slide it has not been readily visible from the roadway.
Council are currently arranging for a Geo-technical Engineer to inspect the area to identify the best long-term recommendations for the repairing the landslide.
Council is expecting the long-term repair and stabilising of the embankment could require significant works. Council are also speaking to NSW Roads & Maritime regarding the works.
We ask that residents remain patient and ensure they follow the traffic signals for their own safety. We will continue to keep the community informed with regular updates on our website and Facebook page.
