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

Bollin-29-6-2021During 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

We have now constructed the Retaining wall workfoundations and have started to rebuild the wall. We are also installing new drainage and will continue to construct the wall over the next couple of weeks. We will then resurface and line the road. The works are anticipated to be completed at the end of August 2021

Following previous flooding, we are continuing to work closely with the Environment Agency and have maintained a safe working area whilst we 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.

We understand that there is no right time to close the road, and we aim to minimise disruption as much as possible.
