Blackwater Road, Eastbourne - Carriageway Preservation Works

Scheme Information:

What works are taking place?

We will be carrying out carriageway preservation works on Blackwater Road, Eastbourne.

The process involves spraying the road surface with a preservative treatment which contains gilsonite resin, a natural bitumen which seals and strengthens the road surface. The treatment stops further deterioration of the road surface and helps avoid the need for additional repairs for up to 5 years.

When will these works start?

Work will take place on Friday 8th October 2021. This date is subject to change subject to change depending on the weather. We will update our website and signage on site with any date changes.

Road closure information

Blackwater Road will be closed to through traffic for a period between 7pm and 6am from Meads Road to Chiswick Place. Once the road surface is dry, the road will be re-opened and is safe to drive on immediately. If you do need vehicle access then please discuss this with the team on site.

A suitable diversion route will be signed on site.
