    An area near 359 Black Mountain Road, Black Mountain, experienced a significant landslip last week as a result of the extreme weather event experienced across the Noosa Shire.

    On Monday 7 March, surveyors will set up survey pins for monitoring and surveying the extent of the slip. The survey and monitoring will provide base data for identifying the extent of the landslip and the risk of further landslips as the poor weather continues.

    TransLink has engaged an operator to run an additional service for students on the western side of the landslip. TransLink can be contacted on 07 5452 1800 for more information.

    Duration: Initial discussion with our consulting engineer has indicated this road could be closed for up to six months.

  • Location: Sobraon Street
    Project:

    Following the intense rainfall event over the weekend of 26-27 February, damage to the constructed stormwater outfall protection occurred. This has impacted a small section of the sandy slope near the Sobraon and Vernon Street, Sunrise Beach intersection.

    Temporary protection work will involve the blocking of three upstream stormwater inlets and the installation of a surface protection to the outfall to manage damaging stormwater flow. As a result, road users may experience additional flow along the roadway of Sobraon Street during periods of heavy rainfall.
