The City of Albany is investigating the cause of significant road damage along Sleeman Avenue in Mira Mar.

The Advertiser understands the residents of at least two properties have been advised to leave their homes, but the City would not confirm how many properties had been impacted.

Last week, the City appeared to be making repairs to the damaged section with cones and sand bags blocking access to the edge of the road.

The City is liaising directly with the homeowners, a spokeswoman said.
