Bollin Grove, Prestbury Retaining wall damage
Bollin Grove, Prestbury remains under an emergency closure due a collapsed section of retaining wall. It will remain closed for safety reasons whilst repairs are carried out.
Bollin Road closure
During a routine inspection of the highway retaining wall on Bollin Grove in Prestbury, we found a large collapsed section at the bottom of the retaining wall by the river.
What will happen
To maintain safety and prevent further deterioration, the road remains closed at this section. This section of highway is a one-way street. Access is maintained for pedestrians and cyclists, and a diversion is in place for vehicles.
Our work schedule
Following recent flooding, we are continuing to work closely with the Environment Agency and have restored a safe working area to complete the reconstruction of the wall. Two additional pumps are now on site should there be a need to additionally manage the quantity of water. Sandbags will be on site and available to residents, although with the additional measures there should not be a requirement to use them.
The wall has now been taken down and we are now installing supports to ensure the undergrown services remain in their current position. We will then continue to dismantle to the wall down to the river bed level before constructing new foundations and then starting the rebuild of the wall.
Our works will take longer than anticipated whilst we undertaken the repairs. We will update this page with further details.
We understand that there is no right time to close the road, and we aim to minimise disruption as much as possible.
