Glen Alvie Road Landslip - Emergency Works

Glen Alvie Landslip - August 2019

UPDATE: We wish to advise that main landslip, along with two minor slips are now completed. Glen Alvie Road is now open for vehicle traffic. The main slip will have a gravel surface for a few months while we wait for everything to settle down, then we can seal it with bitumen. During this time, speeds will be lowered to 60 km/hr on this section of road.

We understand the inconvenience that our works may have caused you throughout the duration of our emergency works. We wish to extend our appreciation to you all for your patience and assistance during these construction works which has helped tremendously to complete these works as quickly as possible.

A landslip occurred during a significant rainfall event on 9 August 2019 at approximately 5.30pm on Glen Alvie Road, 600 metres north of the Recreation Reserve. See photo below. Our Infrastructure Maintenance team acted quickly to close this section of road for public and road users safety. Glen Alvie Road is a rural link road which is Council’s highest level rural road and provides key linkages across the shire. This road services public commuters, agricultural, dairy and school buses.

Council and our Contractor are progressing well with the landslip on Glen Alvie Road and is nearly completed. However, during these works we have identified another 2 minor landslips along this section of the road, a couple 100 metres from the main landslip. Council will be undertaking further remedial works at these new locations. This work will start next week and possibly be completed by Friday 13 September, weather permitting. The road closure will remain until these works are completed. Road detours are in place via Korrine Road.

We appreciate that these works may present an inconvenience to the public and we ask for their patience during these times. Our community, local residents, businesses and other stakeholders will be kept up to date with the project via our website www.basscoast.vic.gov.au.
