Road Closure – Cockmount Lane, Wadhurst 29.9.23 and 2.10.23

Message from East Sussex Highways:

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 repairs to carriageway defects in Cockmount Lane, Wadhurst which have been identified by the local Community Steward.

When do they start?

Work will take place on Friday 29 September and Monday 2 October between 7am and 7pm.

We will inform you of any changes to the dates via advanced warning signs on site.

How will this impact highway users?

Cockmount Lane will be closed from the Jonas Lane junction to the B2100. A diversion route will be in place via Jonas Lane, Gloucester Road, Sparrows Queen Road & vice versa .

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 marshals.

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.
