Place Road, Fowey

Earlier in 2018, two sections of a retaining wall on Place Road collapsed. Temporary stabilisation measures have been in place ever since, with the road closed for safety reasons.

Work will start Monday 18 March and is anticipated to take approximately twelve weeks, though adverse weather conditions can sometimes cause delays.

Over thirty rock anchors will be installed, up to ten metres in length, to reinforce and stabilise the slope. A concrete wall will then be built, which will be faced in natural stone.

Due to the nature of the work, excavation and drilling is required, which can cause some noise. However, we will be working 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, Place Road will remain closed for the duration of the work. Access for residents will remain, but there will be no through road for vehicles at any time. Pedestrian access will be maintained as far as possible.

We understand that this may cause disruption to those living in the vicinity and appreciate their patience and understanding while we carry out this essential work.
