WIRE NETTING INSTALLED AT SITE OF BELGRAVE ROAD WALL COLLAPSE

Published at:

Work to install wire netting over the terraced area between Belgrave Road and Esplanade Road in Ventnor has progressed well this weekend.

The Isle of Wight Council says that contractors faced ‘challenging conditions’ whilst carrying out the work following this month’s wall collapse.

Island Roads are continuing to monitor the situation around the clock over fears the wall and road could collapse at any moment, bringing tonnes of debris onto the road below.

Later on today the nets will be anchored to contain any falling debris.

Officials say that public safety continues to be the top priority.

The council’s community liaison officers have been making regular checks on residents and will continue to do so in the coming weeks. Residents who have any concerns can call Island Roads on 01983 822440 or email [email protected].

Looks attractive, as if the fence has fallen too.
Much better to use gabion walling. Cure all, and look lovely as plants establish themselves amongst the rocks contained within.
