Bodmin Road, St Austell

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

Work started Monday 5 February and will last approximately sixteen weeks, though adverse weather conditions can impact on timings.

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.

However, no through traffic will be allowed at any point during the works.

The wall itself is showing signs of structural instability, and as it supports the carriageway, prompt repairs are essential in order to avoid further deterioration. Specialist piling techniques will be used to reinforce the wall, strengthening it for the future.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience you may experience.
