Work continues on stabilising a large slip at Upper Junction
Rd, near Sawyers Bay, yesterday.
The slip occurred about 100m from the intersection of Upper
Junction Rd and Blanket Bay Rd, during storms last June.
About 30m of road was lost, leaving a 30m scarp on the lower
side of Upper Junction Rd, with a 20m drop.
The $400,000 project is being completed by contractor
SouthRoads Ltd and was scheduled to be finished by the end of
next month, when the road would be reopened, Dunedin City
Council roading projects engineer Evan Matheson said
