Balfour Beatty is working in partnership with East Sussex County Council to manage the highways service across East Sussex. As part of the ongoing design of a new bus lane in this location, we will be returning to The Drove, Newhaven to carry out a drainage investigation.

Once completed, the results of these surveys will contribute to the overall design of the bus lane.

When do they start?

Works will be carried out from Monday 17 June 2024 to Saturday 29 June 2024 between 8pm and 6am. We will inform you of any changes to the dates or times via advanced warning signs on site.

What will we be doing?

The team will be carrying out CCTV surveys of the drainage system in the area.

How will this impact highway users?

The road will remain open with temporary traffic signals in place on Seaford Road and Avis Road.

There will also be lane closures in place on The Drove and at roundabout approaches, as well as on the roundabouts themselves. Please see the map overleaf for more details.

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 works area may experience a temporary disturbance as this can be a noisy process and those properties may experience flashing lights and reversing sirens.

Permit Reference: EA005IM00065-A-01
