Residents will have noticed that Clappers Lane has resumed its role as a tributary of the Adur. The river maintenance sensors have detected potholes beneath the water and WSCC has thus arranged for Balfour Beatty’s crack snorkel team to come and fill them on Monday 11th January between 9:30am and 15:00pm. Mooring and river through-traffic prohibited but resident access to houseboats, etc., retained.
The stretch of Clappers Lane shown above is likely to be closed for a working day this week. There’s a new water supply connection, a new mains electricity connection, and something else of an electrical nature. If you are in a car or a van, proceed as normal, in either direction, but be prepared to have to do a three point turn and retreat.
To undertake repairs to a leaking comm pipe in the carriageway and verge between Wellington House and Rosewood House with road closed signs to be in place either side of the closure at the nearest appropriate junctions from 06/01/2020 to 08/01/2020. Access maintained for emergency services, residents and pedestrians. [Note: these official alerts should be taken with a large pinch of halite.]
Update 1st July: according to an electricity company employee at the site, they will not be closing the road, only the bridleway. And indeed, as of 10:30am today, the bridleway is completely blocked by a digger.
