Closure of Hope Bagot Lane for wall repair work

Related topics: Highways, transport and environmental maintenance

Hope Bagot Lane – near Clee Hill – will be closed from 29 August to 15 September for essential retaining wall maintenance repairs.

The work will involve taking down the existing retaining wall and providing a gabion basket retaining wall with a rock armour embankment, plus removal of vegetation and debris. The road will then be resurfaced.

To carry out the work safely it will be necessary to close Hope Bagot Lane to vehicular traffic. The closure will be in force full time for the period of the works.

When the road is closed, traffic will be diverted by a signed diversion route.

Access for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists will remain available throughout the works and access to frontages will be maintained up to the closure.

Inevitably there will be some disruption during these works but every effort will be made to minimise any inconvenience to the community .

The work will be carried out by Shropshire Council’s term maintenance contractor Kier, with supervision being provided by WSP on behalf of Shropshire Council.
