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 carriageway surfacing works on Diplocks Way, Hailsham.  

When do they start?

Work will be carried out between Tuesday 2 April and Friday 3 May. We will inform you of any changes to the dates or times via advanced warning signs on site.

There are no plans for weekend working during these works.

What are we doing?

These works will include surfacing, associated ironwork adjustments, jointing, kerb repairs, hedge cutting and road marking refreshments.

How will this impact highway users?

Tuesday 2 April – Friday 19 April - The road will be closed between the hours of 7pm and 7am to minimize disruption to businesses in the area. The team will be working between the Diplocks Roundabout and the junction with South Road. Traffic will be diverted via South Road, A22 Hailsham Bypass & vice versa.

Monday 22 April – Friday 3 May – The road will remain open to through traffic with temporary traffic signals in place between 7pm and 7am.

If you need vehicle access during the above closure hours, 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 marshals.

Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

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 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.

Permit Reference: EA004C1-1314-B-02
