Hundred Acre Lane, Wivelsfield - Surface Dressing

Scheme Information:

What works are taking place?

We will be carrying out surface dressing works on Hundred Acre Lane, Wivelsfield.

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.

When will these works start?

These works are scheduled to take place 30-31 July between 7am and 7pm each day.

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

Please look for the signs on site for a specific start date 3 days before works are due to start. Or, please check our website eastsussexhighways.com for up-to-date information.

Road closure information

During the works, Hundred Acre Lane will be closed from South Road junction to Middleton Common Lane. Traffic will be diverted via St Helena Lane, South Road & vice versa.

We will always allow access for emergency vehicles. Pedestrian access will be maintained.

Information for local people

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 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.
