Not so with the other half of the extension: The second barrack suddenly slipped on Monday night and after a few meters crashed into the Äussere Bahnhofstrasse below. Earth, boulders and rubble have completely buried the road.
No signs of landslide
Shortly after 2 a.m., the steep slope started moving, says Curdin Capaul, Mayor of Thusis, to VIEW. “To be honest, that came as a surprise to us.
Only recently had the steep slope and the wall below it been inspected. The re were no signs that it could slide. “ The barracks, too, were only added a few years ago and were properly removed,” says Capaul. The cause is now being investigated in detail.
Evacuation of the street is too dangerous
In the meantime the road and the slope above have been cordoned off. An eviction has not yet been possible, explains the mayor further. The risk that more rubble will fall into the depths is too great.
