Onemana Drive slip remedial work update

Onemana Drive slip remedial work update

Drone footage shows property in Onemana before and after the slip in March.

There is a significantly large slip on Onemana Drive caused by the recent spate of bad weather.

This means the slip now needs to be retained and the stormwater controlled.

"We're extremely close to a solution on how to address the slip," says Bruce Hinson, our Infrastructure Manager.

An engineer, arborist and local civil contractor are carrying out investigative work under the guidance of a charted civil engineer who will form a solution to remediate the area and address stormwater issues.

The first action point is to cut down some trees immediately around the slip, as they may potentially fall into the slip area. This work is expected to start next week so the area will then be cordoned off.

Once this is completed, remediation work will begin on the ground.

"We are doing our best to clear up the slip and deal with the remediation work as soon as possible," says Mr Hinson. "We ask for the community's patience during this time and we'll continue to provide regular updates on the work."

On The Kim Regime

During the Cuban Missile Crisis, the US had a very clear objective and eventually offered a quid pro quo of the removal of some of its own missiles from Turkey. This time, there’s no clarity about what the US is seeking, or offering.

It hasn’t helped that the US and the global media consistently agree on calling North Korea and its leadership “crazy” and “irrational” and urging it to “come to its senses”. When you treat your opponent as being beyond reason, it gets hard to comprehend what their strategy is, let alone work out the terms of a viable compromise. More>>
