WIRE netting has been installed over the terraced area between Belgrave Road and Esplanade Road.

Island Roads posted on twitter today (Monday): Despite challenging conditions, work to install wire netting over the terraced area between Belgrave Road and Esplanade Road has progressed well this weekend.

"Public safety continues to be our priority and we will be securing and anchoring the nets today to help contain falling debris."

As reported, an update was issued on Saturday to say there had been no significant change to the movement of the wall in the previous 48 hours.

The situation continues to be monitored around the clock.

The wall running alongside Belgrave Road partially collapsed on Thursday, January 16, causing the carriageway to crack open and earth to spill out from behind the wall.

Since then, the extent of the damage has worsened considerably and the road has been closed to all traffic and pedestrians.

The council said: "Our priority continues to be the safety of residents and while it remains unsafe and impractical for us to intervene substantially onsite until the situation has stabilised, we have assessed the site area and are planning to take steps to remove any loose material from the site that we can safely access and easily remove, using specially trained, professional roped access teams.

"Although these steps will not stop any wall movement, they will help to remove some of the loose pieces of material that are not contributing to the stability of the wall, preventing them from falling onto the area below."

The road will remain closed for the foreseeable future, and no action will be taken to repair it until the ground movement stops.
