Road Closures


Carriageway Patching to_Clappers Lane. Fulking: ref#_9110137

West Sussex Highways will shortly be improving the surface of Clappers Lane. This work will commence on the 25th February 2013 and will last 2 days.

This process will involve removing the surface layer of tarmac, then replacing with new material.

Due to the large plant used to surface the carriageway a road closure will be in operation to enable us to safely carry out these works in a timely manner. This closure will be in place along the whole length of Clappers Lane, and will be in force between 0800 and 1700. A signed diversion via A281, Poynings Road will be in place.

Before the work starts ‘advance warning’ signs will be erected stating the start date, duration and marking the extent of the works. We shall do our utmost to minimise the impact of the works and you can help us by following this advice:-

  • On the day of the works please don’t park on the road unless you have off street parking.
  • Access to your properties will be maintained where possible: however during periods when materials are being laid access may be limited
  • For safety and cleanliness reasons please do your utmost to keep children and pets away from the area of work
  • When driving on the new surface please keep to the signed temporary speed limits and avoid heavy braking to allow the surface to stabilise

Whilst work is being carried out we would ask that you follow any instructions given by the expert personnel on site. If you have any concerns about access please speak to the site foreman who will be happy to help you.

Please note that the date of this work may change in exceptional circumstances.
Yours faithfully
West Sussex Highways
