Bodmin Road, St Austell

Repairs on the retaining wall at 81 Bodmin Road, St Austell, are currently taking place.

Work started Monday 5 February. 

Works will be carried out in the daytime, during normal working hours and every effort will be made to keep disturbance to a minimum.

In order for these repairs to take place, a section of the road will need to be closed. Access for businesses and residents, and full pedestrian access, will be maintained at all times.

Owing to the discovery of additional work needed, the closure will now be in place until 8June. This will be followed by around five weeks of works taking place under two-way traffic management.

The original plan for strengthening the wall involved installing a piled retaining wall behind the current one, leaving the existing structure in place. Unfortunately, as work has progressed, further assessment has made it clear that a large area of the wall is in need of rebuilding. We continue to explore all possibilities to minimise the disruption and our teams are working hard to advance the program of work.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience you may experience.
