Due to the location of the existing water main, and a number of other utilities already in the ground, we will be required to work in the public highway. Therefore, road closures will be required to keep residents, motorists and our workforce safe.
The works will be carried out under a road closure in two phases:
- The first phase will be a road closure from the junction of Eastbourne Road (B2236) to Rabies Heath Road
- The second phase will be a road closure from Rabies Heath Road to Harts Lane
Road closures are used when we are unable to provide the required legal distances around our works. When this is the case the road will be closed in 100 to 150 meter sections at a time and within these sections the road will be fully reinstated before we move on to the next phase. Access to property driveways within a closed section will be provided throughout.
All traffic management arrangements and diversion routes will be advertised on this page and information boards will be visible in the affected areas prior to any traffic management being implemented.
