High Street, Polegate - Preservation Work

Scheme Information:

What works are taking place?

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 five years.

When will these works start?

Work will take place on Thursday 23rd September 2021. This date is subject to change depending on the weather. We will update our website and signage on site with any date changes.

Road closure information

High Street will be closed to through traffic for a period between 7pm and 6am from north of Albert Place to Eastbourne Road. 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.
