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 the A26 Uckfield Road, Herons Ghyll.

The investigation involves trial holes and core holes drilled at various points into the carriageway surface to allow for testing of the carriageway surface. The results of these investigations will allow us to determine the condition of the carriageway and the extent of any larger works which may be required in the future.

When do they start?

Work will take place on Monday 4 December for 5 nights.

How will this impact highway users?

The road will remain open to through traffic with temporary traffic signals in place between 7pm and 6am.

The investigations will take place between the Perryman’s Lane junction and property ‘Barnsgate Manor’. The team will be moving along the road throughout the night.

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.

Please let us know how we did by leaving feedback. Please note you will be redirected to the East Sussex County Council consultation website.
