Excavators at work to clear the landslide on Scenic Highway
TWO excavators are working on-site, clearing loose rock and earth from the cliff-face next to the Scenic Hwy near Statue Bay.
The highway remains closed due to damage caused by Cyclone Marcia, and detours are in place.
Livingstone Shire Mayor Bill Ludwig yesterday said re-opening the highway was a priority.
He said it was hoped the southbound access could open as early as this week, but the northbound access would take much longer.
