Pirate FM has learnt work to stop another fatal Looe landslip could take till July.

Susan Norman died when her home collapsed back in March.

Now engineers are stabilising nearby Hannafore Road.

Around two hundred homes have been isolated since a landslip in December.

Work to stabilise this stretch of road involves supporting the underside of the existing dry stone wall at the top of the slope, with associated ‘meshing and bolting’ then carried out to stabilise the remainder of the slope above the highway. 

“I am delighted that work is finally commencing on stabilising this part of Hannafore Road” said local Cornwall Councillor Edwina Hannaford. ”This has been a very stressful time for both residents and businesses in Hannafore.”

“The pile of earth caused by the landslip has not only been unsightly, but has also raised safety worries which we can now put to bed.”

The works are expected to take between three to four weeks to complete, with contractors working seven days a week to enable the scheme to be completed as quickly as possible. 

Traffic will be controlled during this time by the use of traffic lights. The scheme will enable the existing material to be removed and Hannafore Road to be fully opened to traffic by the summer.
