The Division of Infrastructure, Quarries and the Environment has said Bloody Bay/Roxborough Connector Road is now passable vehicular and pedestrian traffic afteremergency work on a two-and-a-half-foot drop in the road on October 29.
The division said, however, restoration work on the connector road was a temporary response and infrastructural challenges remain. It said it has launched a comprehensive evaluation of the road and drainage infrastructure to determine the reason for its failure and to develop sustainable solutions.
The division also reported that initial investigations of road failure at the King Peter’s Bay Road, Moriah showed it was a direct result of a leaking water main which led to the retaining wall and road infrastructure being compromised. The road dropped by six inches, with some areas showing visible cracks, the division noted, adding that the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) has responded and addressed the leak, allowing restoration work on the wall and affected portions of the road to begin.
