Wellgreen Lane, Kingston                                                                         8 January 2024


Dear Resident / Business owner,

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 drainage works in Wellgreen Lane, Kingston.

When do they start?

Work will be carried out from Monday 12 February to Friday 16 February, between the hours of 9:30am and 4pm.  We will inform you of any changes to the dates or times via advanced warning signs on site.

What are we doing?

These works involve cleaning the drainage system including all pipes, gullies and access chambers. We will also be repairing all damaged areas found, to alleviate reports of flooding.

How will this impact highway users?

The road will be closed to through traffic whilst the work is undertaken. A diversion route will be in place via Wellgreen Lane, Kingston Road, Southover High Street, Bell Lane, Winterbourne Hollow, Brighton Road Ashcombe Hollow, Ashcombe Lane & vice versa.

If you need vehicle access, 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.

Information for residents and businesses

Parking: If required, 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.
