As you may be aware, we have recently carried out carriageway surfacing works in Ditchling Road, Wivelsfield. We will soon be returning to carrying out some remedial works in this location.

Once completed, these works will rectify any areas which do not meet the required standard.

Work will be carried out between Tuesday 2 April and Thursday 4 April. We will inform you of any changes to the dates or times via advanced warning signs on site.

What are we doing?

These works will include ironwork adjustments and High Friction Surfacing.

How will this impact highway users?

The team will be working from the junction of Green Road and will continue for approximately 200m South.

This section of road will be closed to through traffic between 8pm and 6am.

Traffic will diverted via Folders Lane East, Middle Common Lane, St Helena Lane, South Road, Honeypot Lane, Mill Lane, South Street, East Grinstead Road, B2183, A272 & vice versa.

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.
