    Landslip on Repulse Bay Road

    Hi

    A landslip has completely closed RBR from numbers 45-93 in the last hour or so. No buses operating on that stretch as they are being diverted via the Aberdeen tunnel.

    Traffic from the Park View/Hong Kong Cricket Club roundabout is being diverted via Shouson Hill.

    Just travelled home in a kamikaze Taxi, where the driver thought he could "take on" the tons of debris at breakneck speed. Oh joy!

    Now at home recovering from the taxi ride with a very large whiskey.

    Hi

    Ha ha ha, Stargazer. I thought the same thing, especially when the driver then proceeded to do a 3 point turn whilst overhanging the side of the road/cliff. I just closed my eyes, and pretended I was in a James Bond film. Well, it was a little more like the Goonies really.

    Ahhh, only in Hong Kong.
