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 drainage works in Ludpit Lane and Brightling Road, Etchingham following numerous reports of flooding to private property and the carriageway.

These works involve a jetting unit attending to clear gullies, alleviating flooding to the carriageway and private property.

When do they start?

Works will take place on Tuesday 2 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 involve cleaning the drainage system, including all pipes, gullies and access chambers. Any damaged areas found will be recorded for repair at a later date.

How will this impact highway users?

The road will be closed to through traffic between 9am and 4pm. A diversion route will be in place via Oxenbridge Lane, A265 High Street, Bell Alley Road, King’s Hill Road, Perrymans Lane, Brickyard Lane & vice versa.

The team will be working between the junction Brickyard Lane and Fontridge Lane.

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