Dundee council monitors against potential second landslip

Dundee City Council is continuing to monitor the remains of a retaining wall between residential roads, Gardner Street and Lochee Road, following a landslide late last year.

Real time monitoring equipment is being used on site to allow the council to warn residents living next to the site of the landslide of further ground movement but long term remediation for the site is not yet confirmed.

Investigatory work concluded that the depth and consistency of the rock face were different from previously considered and the council has not yet set a timescale for long term solutions.

Contractor Dundee Plant was brought in by Dundee City Council to demolish the remains of a damaged retaining wall between the two roads after a landslide in December last year.

Dundee City Council said that 800t of materials were removed from the site overall and 1,200t of material, including armour rock, were placed to stabilise the wall while investigations were carried out, by McAlpine.
