Landslip Closes Road

A+section+of+the+Kernot-Krowera+Road+in+Kernot%2C+highlighted+on+this+map%2C+has+been+closed+due+to+a+landslip.

Kernot-Krowera Road in Kernot has been closed due to a landslip.

Bass Coast Shire Council has implemented a full road closure after the landslip was caused by heavy and excessive rainfall over a number of months.

“Council has been recently monitoring the landslips along this road and had noticed a section of road deteriorating rapidly,” Council’s Infrastructure Director, Felicity Sist, said.

“Council has implemented a full road closure for all road users for safety reasons. All emergency service authorities and property owners have been notified.

“Council staff are currently investigating options to rectify the landslip as soon as practicable.”

We apologise for any inconvenience the closure may cause. Please direct all queries to Council’s Infrastructure Projects team on 1300 BCOAST (226 278).
