Lakeside Road landslide progress

Lakeside Rd slip1
Date:
Sep 12, 2017

QLDC has been advised by Marina Terrace Developers that they are working around the clock to remove the landslide on Lakeside Road, Wanaka, following the slip in the early hours of Friday, 8 September. The developers are in regular contact with QLDC representatives and the latest update received is that the continued process of “dewatering” the site has delivered some improvement but has been slower than anticipated. These water flows and levels are being assessed hourly.

The developer’s contractors are awaiting further advice from GeoSolve engineers with regard to shoring up the head of the slip to enable work on clearing the road safely. Work to clear and reopen Lakeside Road can only begin once the site is confirmed as sufficiently stable and there is no risk of subsequent slips occurring. QLDC has engaged Opus International engineers to collaborate with GeoSolve and the developers to independently assess the situation and review their evaluations and recommendations.

At this time no timeline for reopening Lakeside Road is available. The alternative route is via Lismore Street until further notice.
