A46 to be closed - 4th January - 31st March 2021
Coopers Hill A46 to be closed from 4th Jan - 31st March.
The A46 connects Stroud to Gloucester and the Brockworth Bypass. Approximately 1km south of Brockworth a small section of the A46 on Coopers Hill, known as the 'southern corner', is suffering from subsidence caused by landslips.
Highways engineers need to fix the landslip to prevent the road from becoming dangerous. The A46 will need to close so work can take place safely.
What are we doing?
The work will involve drilling into the ground and filling the holes with concrete and reinforced steel structures. Forty-two of these foundations will be installed, reaching a depth of 12.5m and will be placed along a 90m area.
During the works new sections of drainage will be installed and the highway will be fully reconstructed. Contractors Walters UK LTD have been appointed to carry out the scheme.
