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 works in Southview Drive, Uckfield.

When do they start?

Work will be carried out from Monday 12 February to Friday 1 March. 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 the excavation and removal of the damaged concrete layer, and removal and replacement of the tarmac surface. We will also be adjusting all ironworks, such as gullies and manhole covers, and replacing all road markings.

How will this impact highway users?

The road will be closed to through traffic between 7am - 7pm. A diversion route will be in place via High Street, London Road, Browns Lane, Downsview Crescent & vice versa.

Due to unidentified utility services at an unforeseen depth found on site, alterations are required to the excavation taking place to make sure works are completed safely. This means that a small section of the road will remain closed overnight between 14 February and 19 February.

If you need vehicle access, please discuss this with the team on site to see if this is possible. 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 carriageway may experience a temporary disturbance as this can be a noisy process and those properties may experience flashing lights and reversing sirens.

Permit Reference: EA004C1-1108-CW-02
