About this project
To reduce the risk of landslides occurring on the Kings Highway at Clyde Mountain, Roads and Maritime Services carried out slope stabilisation work between Pooh Corner and the top of Clyde Mountain. This included the area where a landslip occurred in April 2012 and July 2013.
Following the slip in 2012, Roads and Maritime carried out a broader geotechnical assessment of the site and Clyde Mountain. The investigations assessed the stability of the mountain and looked at the current rock fall protection measures in place. The investigations identified a need to improve the safety and stability of the slopes above the Kings Highway at this location and treatments to minimise the potential for future landslides.
