Eatenden Lane, Battle - Surface Dressing

Provisional Date 30/08/19

What works are taking place?

We will shortly be carrying out surfacing works on Eatenden Lane, Battle.

When will these works start?

Works are weather dependent so we are unable to advise of a precise date until 48 hours before works start. We will notify you of precise dates via the advanced warning signs on site.

A thin layer of bitumen is applied to the road, followed by a layer of chippings.

Once finished, the road is reopened to traffic as this helps bed the chippings in.

Excess chippings are swept 24 hours, 3 days & 7 days after work is completed.

After 7 days, road lining is replaced, along with any cat’s-eyes. This is also weather dependent.

A temporary speed limit will be in place after the work. Please stick to this speed limit.

Road closure information

Eatenden Lane will be closed for 1 day from Netherfield Road to just south of the Gypsum Mine Access Road.


A suitable diversion route will be signed on site.
