Resurfacing works to be carried out in Loxwood
Essential resurfacing will soon be carried out on two stretches of the B2133 in Loxwood. The surface is showing signs of significant weakening: the new one will be smoother, which will reduce road noise, and will be more resilient to potholes.
Subject to factors such as extreme weather, work will take place in Guildford Road (including a length of Station Road) between Loxwood Place Farm and Merry Hills Lane from 12th to 16th September, and in Vicarage Hill on 19th September. Hours of work will generally be between 8pm and 6am.
Road closures and signed diversions
Vicarage Hill and Guildford Road will be closed to all through-traffic during the resurfacing operations. Side roads may also be affected.
Through traffic will be diverted via a signed diversion route. Residents with off-street parking may wish to make alternative parking arrangements during the resurfacing operations. Pedestrian access will be maintained.
West Sussex County Council on minimising disruption
A West Sussex County Council spokesperson said: “We don’t decide to carry out night-time resurfacing lightly. We have taken into account the wider disruption to communities and road users that would be caused through daytime work on these roads.
“Improvement projects of this nature do cause disruption for both residents and businesses, for which we apologise, but will lead to long-term benefits. Every effort will be made to try to minimise the inconvenience: for example, our contractor will try its best to carry out the noisiest operations in the earliest part of the evening and before 11pm.”
