Looe Fears over Landslip Roads
7:01am 7th December 2012
Locals in Looe are warning lives could be put at risk if a second road into is shut off completely.
A meeting has been held in the town after landslips shut one route completely and took another down to one lane.
Residents are worried emergency vehicles could be sent on massive detours if there is any more disruption.
They are worried it could increase the time it takes emergency services to respond to 999 calls.
Richard Butters runs the local dairy. He is urging the council not to close off St Martin's Hill completely during the roadworks caused by the flooding: "For the people who live in Looe the detour is horrendous. You're looking at Dobwalls to get around to come down for the school runs. It would be an absolute nightmare if it closed altogether.
"It's a good job this didn't happen in August. We could have had the heavy rain in August, that would have been a nightmare. So long as people understand Looe is open for business."
Rob Andrew from the council said: “We recognise that the closure of both roads in and out of Looe would have a serious impact on the lives of local people and so have devised a scheme which will enable St Martin’s Hill to remain open under traffic light control during these works.
“We anticipate that the works will be carried out within the next four weeks and will be working with our partners to ensure that the scheme is completed as quickly as possible."
