Crowborough road to close for resurfacing work

RoadworksOVERNIGHT road closures will be in place on a Crowborough road as a major resurfacing project is carried out.

Work is due to start on Crowborough Hill on Monday, February 19, and continue until Saturday, March 16.

The road will be closed in phases between the junction with Croft Road and the pedestrian crossing by the Well House Veterinary Clinic.

As well as resurfacing, repairs will be made to some of the kerbs, drainage equipment and inspection chamber covers. Road markings will be repainted, including the school markings and high friction surfacing on pedestrian crossings and approaches to junctions and roundabouts.

Repairs will also be carried out on the westbound carriageway on the Church Road junction.

An East Sussex Highway spokesperson said: “Having carried out interim pothole repairs last year to address immediate safety issues, we are now carrying out more extensive repairs which will help prevent potholes from appearing in the future.

“This work has taken longer to arrange than we would have liked, but it was important that it be carefully planned and co-ordinated with utility company roadworks elsewhere in the town that could have had an impact on this busy road.

“As well as carrying out the work overnight, we will also be working in phases to further minimise disruption to residents.

“We apologise for the inconvenience these roadworks may cause, but the result will be a smoother, safer ride for motorists.”

Road closures will be in place between 7pm and 6am each day, but access for residents and businesses will be maintained when safe to do so.
