Brisbane Construction Site Collapse Strands Residents

The collapse of a retaining wall at a construction site in Cleveland in Brisbane, left dozens of residents stranded as they had to flee their homes.

The residents were told to evacuate immediately and had to be provided with temporary housing by the Department of Housing.

Excavators worked almost an entire day to stabilise the 80 metre wall which took out a car port as it collapsed.

One man told of how he heard the wall creaking before watching it collapse.

The sewerage main ruptured due to the wall giving way and the at least 60 residents in the surrounding area were left without hot water as gas was turned off.

It is unlikely that construction will begin again for many months, some speculated.
