SUBSTANTIAL repairs have been been completed on Alum Bay New Road.

Island Roads have installed 80metres of new drainage and rebuilt a section of the highway.

Heavy rain on already saturated ground caused a substantial section of the highway and surrounding land to collapse and slip away from the road over Christmas. The road was reduced to a single lane during the works, which stopped buses from using the route.

Needles Park manager, Marino Zanti, said: "I was really impressed with the speed at which Island Roads repaired this section of road which is critical to our business."
