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 Old Uckfield Road, Uckfield Road, Lewes.

Once completed, these works will help alleviate flooding to the carriageway and private property.

When do they start?

Work will be carried out from Monday 8 July 2024 to Thursday 11 July 2024 between 9:30am and 4pm.

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 involve pipe replacement, removing vegetation roots from pipes, drainage system clearance and CCTV investigations. The team will also be installing a new gully in Old Uckfield Road.

How will this impact highway users?

The team will be working in two locations during these works:

Old Uckfielf Road - From outside property ‘Corsicon Cottage’ and continue 170m South West. The road will remain open with minimal disruption to road users.

 A26 Uckfield Road - Approximately 160m North from the junction of Old Uckfield Road..There will be temporary traffic signals in place for the duration of the works.. 

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