The Ridge, Hastings – Preservation Works
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 Monday 27th September from 7pm until 6am. This date is subject to change depending on the weather – if it rains, we might be delayed in our works. We will update our signage on site with any date changes.
Road closure information
The Ridge will be closed to through traffic for a period between 7pm and 6am from St Helens Park Road to Telham Close. This is for your safety and the safety of our workers. A suitable diversion route will be signed on site.
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 when the road is closed please discuss this with the team on site. We will try to give access where we can but there may be delays whilst we make the area safe. We will always allow access for emergency vehicles and pedestrian access will be maintained.
There will be ‘no parking’ signs and cones on site to advise where parking is restricted.
