New Town, Uckfield - Carriageway Resurfacing

Map showing extent of upcoming roadworks on New Town, Uckfield


What works are taking place?

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 resurfacing works on New Town, Uckfield.

Work will start on Monday 5 June 2023 and continue until Thursday 15 June 2023. We will be working between 8pm and 6am each night. There will be no weekend working and the road will reopen during this time.

We will be working from B2102/Mill Lane junction to Mallard Drive/Eastbourne Road roundabout.

The impact on you

The road will be closed to through traffic in phases between 8pm and 6am each night (no weekend working). See phasing maps below.

The whole site will be closed on the nights of Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th June to enable the road markings and high friction surfacing to be installed.

If you need vehicle access discuss this with the team on site to see if this is possible. Please bear in mind there will be delays whilst your vehicle is being escorted by site marshals.

We will endeavour to provide access for residents where it is safe to do so. We will always allow access for emergency vehicles. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

Diversion routes

Traffic for Uckfield South/North will be diverted via Bell Farm Road, A22, Lewes Road & vice versa.

Traffic requiring Framfield Road area during nights 4 & 5 will be diverted via B2192, A22, & vice versa.

Parking: 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 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. We would like to take this opportunity to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption this work may cause.

Please let us know how we did by leaving feedback. Please note you will be redirected to the East Sussex County Council consultation website.
