Bank slippage

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

I reported that the top of the banking appears to be slipping down towards carriageway where work was done Jan-Mar 2020 Peel Brow Ramsbottom in May 21. This report was closed due to the inspector walking the footpath from 123 Peel Brow and driving down the carriageway. Unfortunately this was the wrong side. The slippage, and moving trees are by the path from 161 Peel Brow. Not sure if this side was also checked.

  • Thank you for contacting Highways England about slippage of the M66 motorway banking adjacent to Peel Brow. We recently inspected this location and found issues here that possibly result from an earlier drainage scheme.

    Our drainage experts are looking into this problem and we'll arrange any remedial action needed. At this stage of the investigation, we're unable to give a date for any remedial action, but please be assured the matter is under investigation.

    Kind regards Highways England
