Resurfacing marks completion of Cleeve Hill stabilisation

Gloucestershire County Council has said that road surfacing is set to take place at Cleeve Hill next week following completion of a major ground stabilisation project on the route.

The busy B4632 was stabilised using 100 12m long micropiles over the summer following issues with ground movement which started in 2016.

Work on repairing the route, which is used by 7,000 vehicles a day, started in June and took 13 weeks to complete.

Gloucestershire County Council cabinet member for highways and flood Vernon Smith said that the stabilisation work was really important to make sure the road from Winchcombe into Cheltenham is protected from future slips.
