IMPORTANT ROADWORKS INFORMATION                                                         3 August 2023

Ashcombe Hollow, Kingston


Dear Resident,

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 surfacing works in Ashcombe Hollow, Kingston

When do they start?

Work will start on Thursday 24 August and continue for 7 days.

We will be working between the junction with the A27 and The Avenue. Please see map overleaf.

How will this impact highway users?

Ashcombe Hollow will be closed to the through traffic between 8am and 8pm. A diversion route will be in place via Kingston Road, Bell Lane, Winterbourne Hollow, Brighton Road, A27 & vice versa.

Access for residents will be maintained between Kingston Road and The Avenue. If you need vehicle access into the closure area, 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.

There are no plans for weekend or bank holiday working during these dates.

Please be advised, we are aiming to return to this area later in the year to carry out surfacing works between Kent Fields and Snednore. Further information will be provided to residents nearer the time.

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, however this forms part of our continuing improvement for the East Sussex highway network.
