The Roads and Maritime Service says that scaling works carried out on the Kings Highway at Clyde Mountain are progressing well. In week one RMS was able to clear over 100m sq of rock and 30 tonnes of vegetation from above the highway, in the vicinity of the 1993 slide site. RMS contractors worked both day and night and were able to complete 25 per cent of the overall work.

This week RMS will continue working on the high risk areas, concentrating on the 2012 slide site at Pooh Corner.
