A landslide has closed one of the major roads out of Sydney today, leaving motorists stranded – and there are reports the damage is so bad it may be blocked off indefinitely.
Bells Line of Road, which links Richmond in western Sydney with the town of Bell in the Blue Mountains, is now closed in both directions and according to the Bowen Mountain community group, it will remain so “for the foreseeable future”.
“Engineers have determined that the latest landslide (just after lunch) has damaged the road to such an extent that there is a high risk of the whole mountainside and roadway collapsing into the gorge below,” the group wrote. “The excessive rain has eroded the structural integrity underneath the road, causing parts of the road to fall into the valley. Many motorists are stuck with no way of getting home.”
