Battle Road, Hastings - Temporary Protection Blocks
What works are taking place?
Working in collaboration with Hastings Borough Council, we will be closing Battle Road on 6 April for 7 days to install temporary concrete protection blocks. This is to protect road users and pedestrians during the planned demolition of several privately owned structures.
Once the blocks have been installed, there will be a lane closure in place for the foreseeable future until the structures have been removed safely. Temporary traffic lights will be in place to regulate the flow of traffic, and the junction with Duke Road will remain closed.
If you have any specific questions about the demolition of the structures then please contact Hastings Borough Council on 01424 451100.
We have decided on these dates so that work can take place during the school holidays and also so that the road can reopen in time for the planned reopening of non-essential retail.
UPDATE: 20TH May 2021
We are pleased to inform you that the demolition works to the dangerous structure in Battle Road started this week.
To facilitate these works we will be assisting Hastings Borough Council’s contractor with setting up a safe site area.
This will require a road closure on Saturday 22nd May, after which the demolition work will proceed for approximately 11 weeks with the road remaining open to northbound traffic only past the site.
Once Hastings Borough Council have completed the demolition work, we will be able to open the road again fully to traffic in both directions.
Traffic will be diverted via Ashbrook Road and the A21 in both directions. Additional signage will also be in place to advise road users against taking unsuitable local routes as a diversion.
During this time traffic will be diverted via Ashbrook Road and the A21. Pedestrian access will be provided to residents where possible but there may be some delays.
Information for local people
The steps from Battle Road up to the rear of the properties on Silverlands Road will also be permanently closed.
