Nailsworth: Landslide Closes B4058
Gloucestershire Highways crews are investigating a known landslip site on the B4058 Nailsworth to Horsley Road, Stroud, following heavy rain.
The site, which has already been the subject of some corrective work this year, has been affected by some surface water on the road, which has had to be temporarily closed while further investigations are carried out.
Highways crews have placed sandbags on the road to protect the properties below from debris sliding down the embankment. Meanwhile, two households have been asked whether they can stay with friends or relatives as a precautionary measure while workers relieve pressure on the landslip.
Investigations could reveal some further corrective work, due to take place in the New Year, needs to be brought forward in response to changes in the area.
Cllr Vernon Smith, cabinet member for floods, said:
“This site was already being monitored closely and work was underway to correct previous issues. The heavy rain has meant some slight changes to the embankment and, as a precaution, we have had to close the road and make sure the surrounding area is safe. As soon as the road has been investigated further we will be able to look at what action needs to be taken.”
