Rothersyke landslip - remediation works planned

Road works sign

 

Cumbria County Council is pleased to reveal just over £1.3m of funding has been secured to undertake remediation works to address the landslip on the C4014 road at Rotheryske, near Egremont.

 

The route has suffered from significant deterioration in recent years, made worse by the December 2015 storms. 

 

The remediation work will include:

 

         re-profiling a 100m length of failed embankment to a stable angle

         removal off-site of failed slope material

         realignment of the existing carriageway

         construction of additional drainage in both the slope and carriageway

         construction of a rock armour protection at the toe of the slope to prevent future erosion

 

Design work will be completed by the end of this year, with remediation works expected to be complete by mid-2017, after which the route will be fully re-opened to traffic.
