These works are being carried out to determine the cause of flooding to private property and the highway.

When do they start?

Investigations will start on Monday 17 July and continue for 2 nights.

How will this impact highway users?

The road will be closed to through traffic between 8pm and 4am from the A27 Ashcombe Roundabout to the junction with The Avenue.


Traffic will be diverted via Wellgreen Lane, Kingston Road, Bell Lane, Winterbourne Hollow, Brighton Road , A27 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. We would like to take this opportunity to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption this work may cause.
