Undercliff Drive is to undergo urgent repairs ahead of the Isle of Wight Highways PFI.
URGENT repairs have been carried out on Undercliff Drive, ahead of the start of the Isle of Wight highways PFI next month.
The Isle of Wight Council said a failed manhole cover and outfall, which were allowing water to seep into the ground, had been repaired as part of a programme of temporary works, which has also included sealing cracks.
The crumbling road has been identified as a high priority for the PFI, which starts on April 1.
As previously reported, work on the road will be divided into four parts and will include soil nailing, piling and reinforced mattresses beneath the new carriageway, all of which will stabilise the ground.
