The public is advised that Ladder Hill Road will reopen as scheduled on Monday, 30 October 2017, at 3pm, to Private Motor Vehicles only.

This is to prevent damage from heavy vehicles next to the new concrete/stone retaining wall and associated backfill.

The concrete in the retaining wall and backfill needs seven days to cure to a suitable strength before heavy vehicles/loads would be allowed to drive on the road.

A height barrier will be erected at the top and bottom of Ladder Hill Road to ensure no heavy commercial vehicles can travel on it during the curing process.

Shy Road will also be opened to Private Motor Vehicles only on Monday at 3pm.

It is anticipated that Ladder Hill Road and Shy Road will open fully to all vehicle users on Friday, 3 November 2017, at 3pm.

The public will be kept updated via the local radio stations.

Whilst the ‘halfway path’ leading from Jacob’s Ladder will remain closed, Jacob’s Ladder is now reopened to the public.
