Monday, 9 October 2017 - 7:00am to Friday, 1 December 2017 - 5:00pm

What works are taking place?
We will be carrying out Carriageway Recycling on St Helen's Road, Hastings

When will these works take place?
These works will start on 9th October for 9 weeks.

Road Closure information
The road will be closed with a suitable diversion in place via Elphinstone Road, The Ridge, Junction Road and Sedlescombe Road North in both directions. 

The road will be closed to through traffic 24 hours a day.

Although we must close the road to through traffic to carry out these works safely, access will be maintained for residents and business users wherever possible. We have conducted many projects similar to this one in the past and have always managed to work in harmony with residents and users of the area.

We will be starting work at the western section, outside number 112 St Helen’s Road and working in 200m to 300m long sections, so access and parking will largely be unaffected in areas where we are not working at a particular time. Although vehicles will be allowed access past our gates, we would like to remind all drivers that inside the site the speed limit is a strict 10mph maximum as this will no longer be a section of the public highway. Barriers will be in place surrounding any excavation, but pedestrian access will be maintained at the perimeter of these barriers.
