Work to stabilise a busy route in Gloucestershire is planned for this summer and will use a micropile solutions, according to Gloucestershire County Council.
The B4632 at Cleeve Hill opposite Lye Lane is used by 7,000 vehicles a day but started to suffer from ground movements in 2016.
The 13 week remedial programme involves installation of 100 raked 12m long micropiles tied into a capping beam to stabilise the slope.
“This is really important work to make sure the road from Winchcombe into Cheltenham is protected from future slips,” said Gloucestershire County Council cabinet member for highways and flood Vernon Smith. “By using temporary traffic lights we can make the land stable without needing to close the road for three months.
“The scheme is part of our £150M promise to improve roads in Gloucestershire.”
