Kiama Council is looking at a number of options to repair Jamberoo Mountain Road.

It comes after more than 60 metres of the road, between The Abbey and Misty’s Lane, totally failed due to a landslip.

The slope under a bend in the road collapsed due to the sheer weight of stormwater.

Director Engineering Mike Dowd said the options include include using gabion baskets and ‘soil nails’ to stabilise the slope, before covering the exposed surface with either shotcrete or specialised mesh.

The road will be out of action for several months.
