Significant new cracks have appeared in the cliff-side land at 116 Clovelly Road, indicating substantial new movement since yesterday.
This, combined with the widening cracks further back on the same property that extend across the public walkway and into 118 Clovelly Road, indicates extensive land movement.
Rocks on the foreshore are cracking and fracturing as well, with visible movement. These rocks are the ‘keystone’ to the cliff face, and new cracks were observed yesterday in the rocks towards the foreshore area below 116 and 118 Clovelly Road.
“Again, it’s imperative that people stay away from the foreshore area of Eastern Beach. Put bluntly, people wandering in this area put their lives at risk,” Mr Walden says.
A lot of people are directly affected by this event and the council is working with the residents who have had to move out of their homes, communicating with them every day to keep them updated, Mr Walden says.
