Road to close from Nailsworth to Horsley so highway teams can inspect land slip
8:00pm Friday 1st November 2013 in News
GLOUCESTERSHIRE Highways crews have been actively monitoring a known landslip on the B4058 Nailsworth to Horsley road.
They had planned a larger scheme of corrective work for the beginning of next year to address land movement.
However, following storms last weekend monitoring has revealed some changes in the area.
Crews are now carrying out a fuller investigation and working to relieve any pressure on the land slip from next week.
The road will be fully closed from Monday, November 4, for two weeks as road crews carry out this work.
Next week’s investigations could reveal some corrective work needs to be brought forward in response to changes in the area.
Vernon Smith, cabinet member for floods, said: “We are sending in our crews to get a better idea of what is going on here. They will review what’s happening and decide what is the best course of action to take. It’s always difficult to close a road like this, but we need to get in and take a look so we can plan appropriate corrective action.”
Further updates will be issued once results from investigations are in.
