Work to remove Old Shoreham Road cycle lane scheduled to begin 13 September

Work is scheduled to begin on the evening of Monday 13 September to remove the Old Shoreham Road cycle lane. 

The works will be done overnight between 8pm and 4am for six days, ending in the early hours of Sunday 19 September.

It was agreed at the Environment, Transport and Sustainability urgency sub-committee on 11 August 2021 that the Old Shoreham Road cycle lane was to be removed as quickly as possible. 

The work is being done in two phases, each taking approximately three days to complete.

  • Phase one: Cycle lane on the south side of the road, from The Drive moving west to Hangleton Road. Work will include removing the plastic wands and repairing the carriageway where they were installed. It was also include relining.
  • Phase two: Cycle lane on the north side of the from, from Hangleton Road moving east to The Drive. Work will include removing the plastic wands and repairing the carriageway where they were installed. It was also include relining.

There will be some noise from a machine that removes the painted lines. However, as this will be moving continuously, any disruption should be relatively brief.

Residents will continue to have access to their properties and driveways throughout the works.

There will be a need for Old Shoreham Road to be closed at times while the works take place, which means there will be delays and diversions for motor vehicles. These will be signposted.
