Alma Bridge, Sid riverbank and Beatlands.

Quite a few hard hat wearing suited types around the pillar foundations of the bridge earlier today - it looks as though the lower regions of the support pillars are very much exposed and causing concern. Perhaps the temporary mecano structure is going to be more permanent.

Walking along Riverside I noticed that a complete section of the wall on the eastern bank of the river, just below the weir at the ford hasĀ collapsed.

Have also heard that there is a landslip up Beatlands Road as well. It certainly looks as though we're copping it much more than just surface flood water.

Yes, it is all very concerning.

Just wondering.

Is the landslip on Beatlands where someone has been extending their house: so that water may have got into disturbed soil? Or is it a bank covered in vegetation?
