Weymouth slope stabilisation completed ahead of Easter break

Weymouth & Portland Borough Council (WPBC) has announced that slope stabilisation work on a former railway line has been completed to enable the Rodwell Trail to be fully reopened ahead of the Easter break.

Contractors Westpointe and H C Lewis started work to stabilise a wing wall on the Wyke Road Tunnel and adjacent slopes to a design by Aspley Associates in November last year.

The £200,000 project was jointly funded by WPBC and Dorset County Council.

“We are delighted to have the linked footpath from Wyke Road reopened ready for Easter weekend,” WPBC head of assets and infrastructure David Brown.

“The Rodwell Trail is a vital link for many residents and visitors to the borough and the stabilisation of the wing wall will ensure the route remains safe and enjoyable for the thousands who use it.”
