Drop in event for landslip works

Published
07.02.2017

Gloucestershire County Council is hosting an event for residents to find out more about work on the Horsely landslip.

The event will take place on Thursday 16th February 2017 4-6pm at The Horsley Village Hall.

Local member Cllr Dorcas Binns, representatives from Gloucestershire County Council’s Highways department, the design team from contractors Amey and the parish council will be available to answer questions from residents.

Work will be starting in the summer and the event will be an opportunity to show all interested people the proposed solution, how it will work and how it will be built.

The experts are developing a ‘pinned retaining structure’. This will mean the road will return to two-way traffic flows.

Until the work is completed temporary traffic lights will continue to help manage traffic flow with access to the lane closest to the slip restricted.

Cllr Dorcas Binns, county councillor for Nailsworth, said: “I hope Horsley residents will take the time to attend this meeting and let the County Council know what they think. 

“This is a massive investment by the council into our area, and I’m keen that we get it right!”

Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for highways at Gloucestershire County Council, said: “The county council is investing over £500,000 into repairing the Horsley slip.

“I hope as many interested local residents as possible will come along and tell us what they think about the scheme.”

The next stages include a competitive tendering process to select a contractor to carry out the work and spades will hit the ground in early summer 2017.
