Eastbourne Road, Pevensey Bay - Surface Dressing

Scheme Location:

Eastbourne Road, Pevensey Bay - Surface Dressing

Scheme Information:

What works are taking place?

We will be carrying out surface dressing works on Eastbourne Road, Pevensey Bay.

Work will involve spraying bitumen binder onto a dry road surface. We then spread stone chippings and roll the surface to embed the stones.

Following works, advisory 20mph speed limits are put in place. This is to protect road users from loose chippings.

This type of work provides a safer, non-skid road surface. It also seals and waterproofs the road, extending the life of the road by 10 years.

We will sweep the road after 24 hours, 3 days and again one week after the new surface has been laid.

We will replace any road markings and studs after the final sweep. This can be one to three weeks after the works. If parked cars are in the way then there may be further delays so please do not park here following works. There will be ‘no parking’ signs and cones on site to advise where parking is restricted.

When will these works start?

The surface dressing works are scheduled to take place on Friday 5th August between 7pm and midnight.

The road stud installation will take place on Thursday 15th September between 8pm & 5am.

This date may be subject to change. We will keep you updated with any changes via the signs on site and our website.
