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 safety critical bridge repair works on Witherenden Bridge, Station Road, Stonegate.

These works involve rebuilding the brick parapet which was involved in a road traffic collision.

When do they start?

Work will start on Monday 18 March and continue for upto 4 weeks. We will inform you of any changes to the dates or times via advanced warning signs on site.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the delay in notifying you of these works. We usually aim to provide a minimum of 2 weeks notice to local residents and roadusers, however on this occasion that has not happened.

How will this impact highway users?

The road will be closed to through traffic at the bridge for the duration of these works.

Traffic will be diverted via Witherenden Hill, Heathfield Road, Shrub Lane, Battenhurst Lane, Cottenden Road, Station Road and 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.

Permit Reference: EA007HM-0036-01-03

We would like to take this opportunity to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption this work may cause, however this forms part of our continuing improvement for the East Sussex highway network.
