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 and other associated works on Ditchling Road, Wivelsfield.

The other associated works will include ironworks, kerbing, setts repairs, gully cleansing, footway repairs and carriageway lining.

When do they start?

Work will start on Monday 22 May 2023 and continue until Monday 5 June 2023.

We will be working from 20 metres north of Green Road junction to 300 metres south of Green Road junction.

How will this impact highway users?

This section of Ditchling Road will be closed to through traffic between 8pm and 6am each night.

There will be no weekend or bank holiday working and the road will reopen.

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.

Traffic will be diverted via B2112, Folders Lane East, Middleton Common Lane, St Helena Lane, South Road, Honeypot Lane, Mill Lane, A275, Beggars Wood Road, A272 & vice versa.

Information for residents and businesses

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 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. 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.
