Work to prevent a landslip causing further damage in Lydney, Gloucestershire is set to start today and road closures for the work are expected to be in place until 10 December.
The repairs winvolve installation of soil nails and rock netting into the embankment on Driffield Road between Yorkley and Lydney.
In 2010, crews successfully used the same methods further down the road where another landslip had occurred.
Gloucestershire County Council cabinet member for highways Vernon Smith said: “Landslips are often challenging from an engineering point of view, but we know this method worked in 2010. The work will take some time, but will make sure the road is safe long into the future. I’d like to thank residents for their patience during the closure.”
