Night time roadworks in April

Work to repair the road surface in Old Shoreham Road, Sackville Road and the Nevill Road junction starts on Monday, 9 April.

The resurfacing will take place over five days at night from 7.30pm to 6am  in order to keep disruption to traffic flows, bus services and local businesses to a minimum.

During the work, the following temporary traffic management measures will be in operation:

  • Sackville Road and Nevill Road will be closed to all traffic at the junction with Old Shoreham Road (ie. traffic will not be able to travel in a north or southbound direction on the approach to the junction with Old Shoreham Road).
  • Old Shoreham Road will remain open to east and westbound traffic only.
  • Orchard Gardens will be closed to all traffic at the junction with Nevill Road.
  • Frith Road and Poynter Road will be closed to all traffic at the junction with Sackville Road (both of these roads will be temporarily subject to ‘two-way’ traffic during the working hours).

Diversions will be in operation during the road closures. Bus stops in the area will be suspended and vehicles will not be able to enter the working area from adjoining side roads or driveways.

Councillor Gill Mitchell, chair of the environment, transport and sustainability committee, said: “These roads are in a poor condition and urgently need repair. We apologise in advance for the inconvenience but we have scheduled the works at times to minimise disruption in this busy area and liaised with the contractor to keep noise levels as low as possible.”
