Harbour Road opens to traffic following landslide

First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

Harbour Road is now open to motorists after traffic was disrupted after a landslide dropped rubble into the area this morning.

Westbound traffic was diverted as Works and Engineering staff cleared up the scene.

The hillside in front of Hope Bowker’s home on Harbour Road gave way at about 6.30am, completely destroying a four-tier Bermuda stone wall.

Ms Bowker said: “Police are here along with Works and Engineering cleaning it up.

“There’s no way to get past. I can’t get out of my house.”

She said her dogs alerted her to the landslide, although she did not know what it was at first.

“I thought it was thunder, but it probably wasn’t,” the homeowner stated.
