I’m writing to let you know about work on the major slip on Highcliff Road that occurred in heavy rain in April. Slip repairs are due to start in early October and are expected to be finished by the end of the year.
For part of the project, the road will be closed between Sandymount and Seaton Roads while drilling and excavation take place. The closure is likely to run for around a month from 8 October. A signposted detour will be in place via Sandymount Road. Castlewood Road is another option and heavy vehicles will be directed to use this route.
Resident access will be maintained, but people will not be able to pass the worksite, so may need to adjust their route if they would normally drive through that section of road. Access will be available from the Sandymount end up to 1299 Highcliff Road and from the Portobello end up to 1589 Highcliff Road.
Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about this work. We’re aware the road closure will be disruptive – thank you for your patience and support.
