Lane Reinstatement Thorverton
Thorverton and Brampford Speke Community Access Group (TABSCAP) were award funding for Remedial works returning a highway (Hulk Lane Thorverton). This was lost to public use after a major landslip in the form of a Bridleway.
Due to the heavy nature of the works costs have had to be cover a local professional drainage contractor and volunteer labour was deployed primarily to project manage the works. The fund was used for the following; to clear scrub and undergrowth from alongside path. Excavate and lay field and French drains and manholes in order to stabilise the embankment and to drain water to an adjacent stream. Preparation and laying of a new multi-purpose surface in the area of landslip.
Volunteers will also continue to provide full attendance and project management services. All to designs approved and signed off by DCC Highways engineering staff.
This work has Stabilised the hillside and returned the lost road back to the community. This road is a much needed local asset
