Eight separate slips caused by the July 2020 storm have presented eight different challenges for workers in narrow areas on steep hillside terrain.
We have done significant strengthening work and made extensive ground-stabilising efforts at the main slip to ensure heavy freight movement can safely resume along the highway.
Right now, we have multiple crews working on several activities at once on both sides of the road at various sites. They are completing drainage above and below ground so that in the future stormwater will be drawn away from vulnerable areas.
We are also looking forward to finally sealing our road surfaces. We're crossing our fingers for a window of good weather so we can lay chip seal down.
