Your final chance to get involved

 

Gloucestershire County Council is holding one final event for residents to find out more about work on the Horsley landslip.

The event will take place on Monday 26th June 2017 5-7pm at Horsley Village Hall.

Local member Cllr Steve Robinson, representatives from Gloucestershire County Council and the design team from contractors Amey will be available to answer questions from residents.

Work will be starting on 31st July and is expected to last 15 weeks. This drop in 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.

To allow the work to be completed, there will be a full road closure and diversions in place.

Cllr Steve Robinson, county councillor for Nailsworth, said: “This is an important opportunity for residents to learn about what will be happening in their local community and how the work will prevent it happening again.

“I really hope Horsley residents will take the time to attend this event and ask for the answers they want to know.”

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.

“It would be great if as many interested local residents came along and told us what they think about the scheme.”
