Work to stabilise the B3230 route near Muddiford in Devon has been completed.
The edge of the road collapsed in December 2016, with debris filling a leat at the bottom of a steep embankment.
Remedial work included a two-phase concrete wall built approximately 4m below the road level, which was sheared into the rock head. The second wall was built in front with a sawn board finish.
Council officers identified the need to provide sufficient erosion resistance to the toe of the newly constructed retaining wall, and excavated next to a depth of around 2m below bed level and cast a concrete toe wall.
A masonry parapet wall and a small wall to line the edge of the leat were then added.
Devon County Council councillor Stuart Hughes, who is responsible for the county’s highway network, said: “When roads are closed for major repair schemes, every effort is always made to re-open them as soon as possible.
“That has been achieved ahead of schedule on this occasion with everything going smoothly, and we would like to thank local people for bearing with us while we made this important route safe.”
The work was carried out by local civil engineering firm MacPlant Construction who completed the work in just over 11 weeks.
