St Clement’s coast road remains closed
Friday 28th December 2012, 2:50PM GMT.
PEOPLE living on St Clement’s coast road were evacuated from their homes yesterday after a huge hole suddenly opened up in the road.
The road could be closed until tomorrow afternoon after the three-metre hole – caused by an old broken sewage pipe – appeared on the eastbound side of the road just before the turning for Green Island.
An eyewitness at the scene yesterday said that the hole had opened up just after a large lorry had driven past.
People who live in the area were asked to leave their homes yesterday while staff from the Transport and Technical Services department made sure that there was no danger to members of the public.
They were allowed back into their homes by the afternoon.
