A sewer access hole has collapsed in Banora Point on the corner of Leisure and Darlington drives. Tweed Shire Council crews were on site at the sewer access hole collapse earlier today.
‘There are no risks to the community or the environment as the sewerage is still contained within the pipe system,’ manager water and wastewater operations Brie Jowett said.
The cause of the collapse is not yet known. The site of the collapse will be barricaded off to ensure pedestrian safety and a road closure may be necessary if there is a chance it could be undermined.
Emergency repairs will be undertaken. Full repairs will be scheduled as soon as possible as the weather permits.
