Scheme Location:


Marley Lane, Battle - Surface Dressing

Scheme Information:

What works are taking place?

We will be carrying out surface dressing works on Marley Lane, Battle between A21 and Harrier Lane.

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?

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

Prior to the surface dressing works we need to remove road studs. This work will take place on Tuesday 19 July for one day between 8am and 5pm. During this time, Marley Lane will be closed.

The surface dressing works will take place on Tuesday 9 August for one day between 8am and 5pm. During this time, Marley Lane will be closed.

After the surface dressing, we will need to return to reinstall the road studs. This work will take place on 28 October for one night between 7pm and 6am.

Traffic will be diverted via A21, A2100 London Road, A2100 High Street, A2100 Upper Lake and 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.
