According to Maxwell, the hill moves about 30 to 40 mm per year and is, overall, quite stable, providing proper measures are put in place to avoid a landslide.

When it comes to the bridge, Maxwell maintains that the bridge is safe and that the engineering and public consultation phases for the bridge are getting underway.

Consultation is expected to begin this spring through an online survey.
