Ironbridge Jiggers Bank road reopens after landslide
A Shropshire road which was closed by rockfalls last year has reopened after almost eight months.
Jiggers Bank, a main route into Ironbridge, was closed after rocks fell onto the road following heavy rain.
The works to reopen the route included repairs to the rockface, shoring-up mine-workings, improving drainage, installing nets and sinking anchors into the earth to prevent slippage.
Telford and Wrekin Council thanked people in the area for their patience.
A spokesperson said "about a tonne of rock" fell on to the carriageway in the initial fall and "the safety of road users" was the council's priority.
A planning application was required for the repairs because of the road's position within the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site.
Jiggers Bank has undergone a series of works in recent years as part of the council's programme of land stabilisation in the area.
