Still no word on when Duncan’s Allenby Road will reopen

Road was closed last November after landslide

There is still no indication as to when Allenby Road, which has been closed to traffic for almost a year, will reopen.

Sections of the road between Miller and Boys Roads in Duncan were shut down last November after a flooding event caused a landslide that buried that part of the road in debris.

The area where the landslide occurred is on land belonging to Cowichan Tribes and, in cooperation with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, the First Nation embarked on a slope assessment soon after the landslide to determine what the next steps should be in stabilizing the hill and reopening Allenby Road.

A ministry statement on Oct. 31 acknowledged that the slide area is on Cowichan Tribes land, and confirmed assessments and discussions with Cowichan Tribes are still ongoing to find a solution to repair the failed slope and find a long-term solution to protect and open the road.

“No timeline is available at this point,” the ministry said.
