The following is a Public Announcement from the Roads Section:

Repair works on the retaining wall at Shy Road commenced yesterday, Tuesday 14 August 2018, with the Roads Section installing additional safety measures directly below the affected area and demolishing the affected part of the retaining wall.

The extent of the repairs is greater than what was originally anticipated and it is estimated that Shy Road will remain closed for the next two weeks to allow the full works to be completed.

Due to loose material also being temporarily stored on the Road and, for safety reasons, the Road will be closed to pedestrians and vehicles until it has been deemed safe to use.

The Roads Section has received some concerned phone calls but would like to reassure everyone that works are being carried out in a controlled manner.

The public is thanked for their co-operation and will be kept updated.
