Geotechnical Schemes

Island Roads have developed a programme to improve long-term geological issues across the Island within the first seven years of the contract.

However, due to the changing nature of the Island’s geology, this programme may vary to ensure that we prioritise schemes to safeguard the public.

Geotechnical schemes to improve these issues will be carried out in:


Bouldnor Complete  
Duver Road Complete  
Newport Road (Graben)   Milestone 6
Whitwell Road, Ventnor   Milestone 6
Westhill Lane, Yarmouth   Milestone 8
Gills Cliff Road, Ventnor   Milestone 8

The Terrace, Chale   Milestone 12
Shippards Chine   Milestone 14
Undercliff Drive A On hold  
Undercliff Drive B On hold  
Undercliff Drive C On hold  
Undercliff Drive D   On hold

LTS - Long term solution    STS - Short term solution

The contract has been divided into Milestones for monitoring purposes. Each Milestone is for a 6 month period and we are now in Milestone 9.

We recognise that information pre and post works is essential to residents and visitors of the Island. We will keep you informed on what works we will be doing as a part of these improvements and when the schemes will be undertaken.
