Work starts to re-open the road at the centre of a fatal landslip in Looe.

Pensioner Susan Norman died when torrential rain reduced her flat to rubble.

The scheme on St Martins Road will involve installing concrete piles into rock under the road and rock-anchors will be used to provide additional stability with the whole area capped with a concrete edge beam.

The work will take between eight to ten weeks but it is hoped the road will re-open under traffic light control by the start of the main school summer holidays in July.

Further works will then take place in the winter to allow the road to return to full two-way operation.


Paul Masters, the Council's Interim Chief Executive said:  "We appreciate that the on-going closure of St Martin's Road is causing problems for many local residents and businesses and are committed to re-opening the road as quickly as possible."
 
The Council says it will try to keep disruption to a minimum.  A site liaison officer is dealing with queries and concerns from residents and businesses.

A further drop in session is also being held at the Guildhall in Looe on Wednesday, 22 May from 2pm to 7pm to give local businesses the opportunity to talk about their issues and receive advice on help that may be available in the current circumstances.

The session will also be attended by local councillors and representatives from the Council's economic development and localism teams.   A highways officer will also be there to explain and answer queries about the St Martin's Road scheme.  Businesses are invited to drop into the session at their convenience during the day.

 
Information on the works which are taking place in Looe and advice and activities for local residents and businesses are available on the Council's website - www.cornwall.gov.uk/looelatest.
