Dangerous Slips Around Manukau

Clovelly Road, Bucklands Beach update

Manukau City Council is warning the public to stay well clear of the cordoned off area between 114 and 118 Clovelly Road, Bucklands Beach because of a dangerous slip.

The occupants of five dwellings on three sections of land have evacuated their homes as a result of severe land subsidence towards the cliff face.

Manukau City Council’s Economic Director Rick Walden says the council’s geotechnical experts have advised there is a significant slip that could go at any time.

“It is extremely important that no-one goes near the slip area. We don’t know when it might go. We have already cordoned off the area and we urge people not to walk along the foreshore in front of the properties because of the high risk of the slip moving rapidly at any time.

“We have been advised that the cause of the slip is natural, with rock within the cliff face fracturing and giving way. The subsidence is towards the cliff face. The road remains open and other residents can go about their day-to-day activities.”

The council will have security at the site to ensure people do not go on to the walkway or put themselves at risk.

“It is moving and we will keep monitoring the situation,” Mr Walden says.
