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 in Bardown Road & Stonegate Road, Stonegate.

When do they start?

Work will be carried out from Wednesday 19 June 2024 to Friday 21 June 2024 between 9:30am and 3:30pm. 

We will inform you of any changes to the dates or times via advanced warning signs on site. 

What are we doing?

The investigation involves trial holes and core holes being drilled at various points into the carriageway surface to allow for testing 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 later in the year.

How will this impact highway users?

The team will be working from the junction of Station Road to the junction of Ticehurst Road. Access to the road will be restricted for the duration of the works.

Traffic will be diverted via Stonegate Road, Bardown Road, Cottenden Road, Sheepstreet Lane, Wardsbrook Road, Church Street, High Street, Stonegate Road, Bardown Road & vice versa.  

If you need vehicle access, please discuss this with the team on site. Please bear in mind there will be delays whilst the area is made safe and your vehicle is escorted by site marshalls. 

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.
