Map showing extent of works area
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 interim carriageway repair works on the A26 Eridge Road, Boarshead by way of spray patching, prior to full resurfacing later in the year.
Once completed, these works will help improve the condition of the road surface, and ensure a smoother and safer journey.
When do they start?
Work will start on Wednesday 27 September and continue until Thursday 28 September.
We will inform you of any changes to the dates via advanced warning signs on site.
What are we doing?
These works involve removing dust and debris from the area with a high pressure blower, before sealing the area from water ingress.
Following this, a bitumen mixture will be applied at high velocity to repair and regulate the road surface. The surface and surrounding area will then be sealed.
How will this impact highway users?
We will be working between the Boarshead Roundabout and the Texaco petrol station.
The A26 Eridge Road will remain open with temporary traffic signals in place.
Information for residents and businesses
Parking: 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.
We would like to take this opportunity to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption this work may cause, however this forms part of our continuing improvement for the East Sussex highway network.
Please let us know how we did by leaving feedback. Please note you will be redirected to the East Sussex County Council consultation website.
