Work is starting to repair a bizarre road buckling that appeared in LA County in the US last year.
More than 120m of Vasquez Canyon Road was destroyed by a landslide in November. Some sections were pushed as high as 4.5m above normal.
After investigations, geologists found that rain infiltrated cracks created by drought conditions and moisture beneath the surface. This triggered the slide.
A £3.5M repair job by LA County Works is now underway, with the plan to reopen the road by summer next year. Part of the road’s hillside is privately owned, which authorities say is delaying the investigation and rebuilding.
