BUSINESS has returned to normal following the completion of work to repair a main road in Troon.

Butcher David Moyle was among those pleased that Cormac Solutions Limited finished the repairs on behalf of Cornwall Council, finally bringing weeks of disruptions to an end after the road collapsed into an adit.

He said: "I'm happy that business has returned to normal.

"The damage caused business to drop as none of my customers from Troon were able to get here."

Councillor Edwina Hannaford, Cornwall Council Cabinet member for environment, heritage and planning, said: "The collapse of the adit which used to supply water to the residents in New Street prior to the development of a mains water supply has caused subsidence and flooding issues for some properties in the village.

"We hope that the completion of the scheme will help improve the quality of life for the residents of Troon and restore confidence in properties in the area."

The work was tied into long-standing efforts to install deep drainage from Treslothan Road to the new outfall at The Reens.

An inspection was carried out and followed by the drainage and clearance of the adit.

Paul Britton, area manager for Cornwall at the Homes and Communities Agency, said: "After detailed investigations in 2011 this culminated in the agency investing the £1.4 million to undertake the stabilisation works.

"This delivers really good news for residents of Troon, particularly the local school and businesses through securing homes that people now know is worth investing in for the future."
