GEOTECHNICAL engineers working for Glenelg Shire Council will be at the Ploughed Field this Thursday to discuss the dangerous state of walking tracks between Nuns’ Beach and Anderson Point.
The engineers will present some of their findings and be available to the public to explain what must happen next to make the area safe.
A marquee will be set up on the Ploughed Field, adjacent to the high-risk area, with AS Miner Geotechnical consultant, Anthony Miner, offering first-hand explanations and a walk-through of the issues associated with the location.
Portland experienced heavy and prolonged periods of rainfall last year, corresponding with significant landslide activity on the section of coast between Nuns’ Beach and Anderson Point.
As a result, a number of paths and tracks were impacted and concerns for public safety were expressed.
