Balfour Beatty is working in partnership with East Sussex County Council to manage the highways service across East Sussex. As part of this, we will be carrying out site investigation works on Upperton Road, Eastbourne.

What does the work involve?

The investigation forms part of the design stage for future bus lane facilities.

The works involve ground penetrating surveys to determine the condition of the carriageway sub-surface. The results of these investigations will allow us to determine the condition of the carriageway and the extent of larger works which may be required

When do they start?

Work will take place between Monday 20 May and Thursday 30 May. We will inform you of any changes to the dates or times via advanced warning signs on site.

How will this impact highway users?

The road will remain open to through traffic with lane closures and temporary traffic singals in place. There may be some minor delays whilst machinery is being moved. The team will be onsite between 8pm and 6am.

Permanent traffic signals at the junction of The Avenue will be turned off and replaced with temporary signals.

Please see the below traffic management schedule:

20 May – Multiway traffic signals at the junction of Hartfield Road

21 May – Lane closure outside Pembroke House

22 & 23 May – Multiway traffic signals at the junction of The Avenue

28 May – Lane closure at the entrance to the Enterprise car park

29 May – Lane closure at the Station Roundabout / Southfields Road

Information for residents and businesses

Parking: If required, we will put out ‘no parking’ signs and cones on the site to advise where parking is restricted. Please avoid parking in these locations as it will delay our works.

Weather: All of these works are subject to favourable weather conditions, for example heavy rain may affect the progress of the works.

Properties close to the carriageway may experience a temporary disturbance as this can be a noisy process and those properties may experience flashing lights and reversing sirens.
