Works are set to commence on Bentham Road, between Wennington and Low Bentham, on the 24th October 2016 for ten days or upon completion of the works if sooner. The works will require a full road closure to allow site personal and associated large plant machinery to work safely.
This is the final phase of the scheme to repair the landslip that occurred as a result of the unprecedented rainfall and flooding late last year. The works to be undertaken involve a series of ground anchors being installed to secure steel netting, along the area that has been repaired, to prevent any of the large stones from moving and falling on to the carriageway. In addition, a small area adjacent to the main repair will also have the same anchors placed to prevent any further smaller slippages occurring.
