Landslide in Rothrist AG: As the Blick reader reporter Kevin Zürcher (36) reports, there was a landslide on Tuesday night.
“The whole road is now blocked by rubble and branches,” says Zürcher, who is responsible for road maintenance in the canton of Aargau, to Blick.
The entire Gländstrasse is now closed up to the municipality of Vordemwald. Zürcher could not say how long traffic would be hampered by the landslide. “But the whole thing will definitely take several hours.” The reader reporter continues to speculate that the mass of earth on the slope was probably loosened by the heavy rainfall of the last few days.
