Landslip Recovery

Black pinch trailCouncil is developing plans to repair a total of 25 landslips that are impacting road assets across Noosa Shire. Council has already engaged independent geotechnical engineers, who are experts in this field, to determine the severity of the landslips and the best way to safely repair the roads. A number of roads have been closed based on preliminary reports and technical information about road stability.  While inconvenient, the road closures are for the safety of the road users in the area so please follow any road signs.

The final geotechnical reports will provide the technical input needed to design permanent solutions for repairing these slips.

Please note: the landslip at Noosa Trail Network Trail 2 & 4 Twin View Hills Lookout (nearest Black Pinch Road) is significant. To ensure safety of park users, do not enter this area. Council has not authorised access for any party except to the necessary engineers undertaking slope stability testing.

Phase 1: Landslips require geotechnical engineering to determine slope stability which will inform the remediation works required. 
Phase 2: Submission to the Queensland Reconstruction Authority (QRA) to gain approved funding from the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).  Timing of submission may need to wait until the funding grant is released by QRA. 
Phase 3: Design and environmental approvals.
Phase 4: Construction.
