Resurfacing and drainage works will be starting at the end of July 2017 between Cob Close and Gullage. Sections of the path will be closed for health and safety reasons whilst these works are carried out.

The paths around Crawley Down Pond will also be improved. Work will commence in the week beginning 24 July 2017 and will last for approximately four weeks dependant on weather.

Refurbishment of Pedestrian Crossing

24 May 2017

We are pleased to inform you that as part of our continuing efforts to improve the highways, work is due to commence soon at London Road, East Grinstead.

What we’re doing

This project will include:

  • Refurbishment of the existing Pelican crossing to a new style Puffin pedestrian crossing. All new equipment will be installed on site.
  • Inclusion of pedestrian beepers and rotating tactile devices to aid those with visual impairments to cross safely.
  • Alteration of dropped kerbing to improve drainage. With the pedestrian tactile paving being replaced.
  • A temporary pedestrian crossing facility is currently on site and will remain on site for the duration of the refurbishment.

When this will take place

The work will start on 22 May 2017 and is expected to take 2 weeks to complete. Our hours of work will generally be between 9am and 5pm.

Road Restrictions during the work

A temporary narrowing of the carriageway will be introduced to ensure the safety of those working on site. With a temporary pedestrian crossing facility in place.

College Lane Bridge – Parapet Upgrade Works – revised start date

31 March 2016

Further to my previous email regarding the parapet works at the bridge in College Lane, I wish to inform you that the revised start date will be Tuesday 29th March.

The works will last for approximately four weeks and traffic lights will be provided to control vehicles onto a single lane across the bridge. There will also be four night time closures of both the bridge and the road below to allow certain activities to be carried out safely. The evenings of these closures are currently programmed to be the 29th March and the 12th, 13th and 26th April, however, these times are subject to change depending on how the works progress.

The contractor is proposing to extend the normal daytime shifts in order to expedite the works, therefore, although all of the noisy activities (such as drilling etc.) will be carried out in the daytime, an occasional small level of noise disruption may be experienced at night.

The routine inspections will make sure all three structures are safe, and identify any defects to repair.

The bridges being inspected are:

  • College Lane
  • London Road
  • London Road footbridge

Work starts on Monday, October 19 and is scheduled for seven nights. Working hours are between 8pm and 6am.

The A22 Beeching Way, which runs underneath, will be closed overnight during this time.

Temporary Road Closure – Station Road

NOTICE is hereby given that not less than 7 days from the date of this notice, West Sussex County Council intends to make an Order under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the effect of which will be to temporarily close Station Road in East Grinstead, from its junction with the Station Road/Railway Approach Roundabout, northwards to its junction with Beeching Way.

The road closure is needed to allow a new bus interchange to be constructed in the slip road outside East Grinstead Railway Station.

The Order is expected to come into effect on 14 September 2015 and remain in force until 6 November 2015.  Once made, the Order may remain in force for up to 18 months, or until the proposed works are completed, whichever is earlier.

During the operative periods of this Order, alternative routes for vehicles will be clearly indicated on site.  Access to properties on the affected length of road will be maintained at all times.

Any queries about the effect of the Order on traffic using the highway should be directed to the West Sussex County Council Contact Centre, telephone number 01243 642105.

Worth Way closure for resurfacing works

16 July 2015

Update from WSCC:

I am writing to let you know that the resurfacing works on Worth Way that were postponed earlier this year have now been rescheduled, with some changes. The works are scheduled to take place in September and October this year, they will take between 6 – 8 weeks, I will have more precise dates nearer the time. The works will mean that Worth Way will be closed to the public between Gullege and East Grinstead for the duration of the contract. This is essential for health and safety as heavy plant will be tracking up and down the route, it is also necessary so that the newly laid surface material has a chance to bed in before being walked and ridden on. I will publicise an alternative route on the public Bridleway through Imberhorne Farm which should minimise inconvenience for commuters in particular. The remainder of the route between Gullege and Crawley Down will be closed between 9.30am and 3pm as there will be lorries delivering stone during these times and the public will need to be excluded for obvious reasons.

Just a reminder that these works are being funded by s106 money not via the County Councils operational budget. The work will restore the path to the same spec as when it was last surfaced. Redefining the camber which will improve drainage and redressing surface with limestone dust to give a smooth surface to walk and ride on. This popular section of Worth Way has over 90,000 visitors a year and the existing surface has become worn and uneven making it unpleasant to use particularly for the elderly, cyclists and those in wheelchairs and mobility vehicles.

Summary of Traffic Management for SEW Major Works in East Grinstead

15 July 2015

The following detail on disruption mitigation measures has been supplied by WSCC:

  1. The Imberhorne Lane works start Monday 13th July, firstly with temporary traffic signals.
  1. The closures on Imberhorne Lane start on 23rd July and are currently scheduled to last until 17th
  1. Works start on London Road east of the signal junction with Imberhorne Lane on 17th August and last until 4th These will be under temporary 3-way signals at the Imberhorne lane junction. These temporary signals cannot be linked technically with the permanent signals at Felbridge. So the same issues may well arise as with the SGN works, although the peak demand will be smoothed out because there will be less school run traffic but possibly increased holiday traffic instead.
  1. The diversion route for Imberhorne Lane relies upon Turners Hill, but this uses B-class roads and should cope with the size of traffic although volume may be a slight restriction. Imberhorne Lane has a couple of pinch points over bridges but should adequately be able to serve the business estates.
  1. Other measures worked up with SCC are some additional static warning signs placed in a wider cordon, on their network as well; SCC will use their static VMS signs (again in a much wider cordon) to deter motorists from outside our two counties; similarly we have engaged the RCC at Godstone with a request to utilise the VMS on the M25 when not being used for other incident information.

Further Detail

  • Surrey CC static VMS at the following locations:

V804 – A22 Southbound between Whyteleafe and M25 (captures all London southbound A22 traffic)
V801 – A25 Westbound – approaching A22 from Oxted
V803 – A25 Eastbound – approaching A22 from Bletchingley
V903 – A23 Southbound – between Coulsdon and M25 (captures all London southbound A23 traffic)
V902 – A217 Southbound – between Kingswood and M25 (captures all London southbound A217 traffic)

The message prior to the A22 works will read:

A22 SOUTHBOUND
EAST GRINSTEAD
ROAD WORKS
17 AUG – 4 SEPT
Once works commence the 4th line of the message will change to read

‘EXPECT DELAYS’ .

  • Signals at A22/A264 Felbridge (managed by SCC)
    These signals operate using optimisation software. Engineers will try operating short pulses of traffic through the junction by taking the operation outside the software to try and mitigate the effects of the temporary 3-way signals at Imberhorne Lane. Operation will be monitored on day 1 of the works and if this does not assist traffic flow through the junction, the operating software will be reintroduced.
  • Additional advance signage in Surrey

South East Water have been asked to provide additional signage at points further out into Surrey, see below, to allow traffic from outside the area to take alternative routes:
a. A22 before j/w Ray Lane, Lingfield (southbound)
b. A22 before j/w B2028, Newchapel (southbound)
c. B2037 before j/w B2028 (Eastbound before rbt. at Effingham Park Golf Club)

  • Works moratorium
    SCC will maintain a moratorium on all planned works on those roads which motorists may use to circumnavigate the section of A22 affected by the works.
  • Highways England support

Both SCC and WSCC are working with Highways England to use the M25 VMS units to alert southbound drivers of the potential for delays. This will be dependent upon them not requiring them for incident messaging on their own network.

  • Other options
    Consideration was given to easing flow through the Felbridge junction by closing the A264 at the junction and using diversion routes north and south of the A264.

This was discounted because the A264 is a heavily used route and to positively drive this traffic into less suitable roads was not considered viable. Turners Hill in particular experiences increased traffic volumes anyway with current traffic management measures notwithstanding all southbound traffic being routed in this direction.

Consideration was given to introducing a full closure of Imberhorne Lane whilst the works on the A22 were in progress. This could remove totally the 3-way signals at Imberhorne Lane so the only restriction to traffic on the A22 would be the 2-way signals protecting the works themselves. This was discounted as experience indicates that traffic, especially HGVs bound for the industrial estate, would cut through the residential areas off London Road and into Heathcote Drive and beyond. This was therefore considered unacceptable.

Temporary Road Closure – Imberhorne Lane

NOTICE is hereby given that on 16 July 2015 West Sussex County Council made an Order under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the effect of which will be to temporarily close the northbound carriageway of Imberhorne Lane in East Grinstead, from its junction with Hills Road, northwards to its junction with London Road.

The restriction is needed to allow the installation of new water mains to be carried out in safety.

The Order is expected to come into effect on 23 July 2015 and remain in force until 4 September 2015. Once made, the Order may remain in force for up to 18 months, or until the proposed works are completed, whichever is earlier.

During the operative periods of this Order, alternative routes for vehicles will be clearly indicated on site. Access to properties on the affected length of road will be maintained at all times.

Any queries about the effect of the Order on traffic using the highway should be directed to the West Sussex County Council Contact Centre, telephone number 01243 642105.

M23/A23 Road Closures and Speed Restrictions

All change for Christmas rail services

12 November 2013

THREE ‘significant’ upgrades scheduled to take place on the main railway line from East Grinstead into Victoria over the Christmas and New Year will mean changes to the usual timetable.

The infrastructure inprovements include:

  • a new platform and associated track and signalling work at Gatwick Airport which will provide greater flexibility for train services calling at the station from February 2014
  • a major junction replacement between Redhill and Purley which will remove the need for speed restrictions and increase the railway’s reliability
  • the completion of work to new signalling between London Victoria and Battersea

During the period that the work is being carried out Southern will run a revised service, and Gatwick Express services will not run from 25 Dec to 1 Jan. More information on these service revisions can be seen at www.southernrailway.com/christmas and www.gatwickexpress.com/christmas.

One option for passengers will be to travel to and from London via East Grinstead on a direct train.

Frequent rail replacement buses will run between East Grinstead station and Gatwick Airport or Three Bridges, with trains to/from stations further south. East Grinstead station will therefore be a hub for passengers changing at the station for their onward travel.

7 February 2013

West Sussex County have advised us that planned surface improvements to Forest Way in East Grinstead are to be carried out by contractors in the Spring, which will involve the route being closed from Herontye Drive to the A22. The surface on this very well used section of path has deteriorated over the years, leaving it very bumpy particularly for cyclists, pushchairs and mobility vehicles. The improvements will re-profile the path to improve drainage and re-top with compacted limestone dust for a smoother surface. There are no specific dates as yet but it is hoped this will be complete by Easter.

Temporary Road Closure – Dunnings Road

13 November 2012

Temporary Road Closure – Dunnings Road

West Sussex County Council will shortly make a temporary Traffic Regulation Order that will close Dunnings Road in East Grinstead from its junction with Hurst Farm Road to its junction with Ship Street.

The Order is needed to allow gas mains to be replaced and it will be in force from 26 November 2012 until 20 December 2012.  While the Order is in place access to properties on the affected length or road will be maintained at all times and alternative routes for vehicles will be signed on site.

The road works will take place during normal working hours, however should the project slip the WSCC have agreed to reconsider whether weekend working will be appropriate to ensure that this inconvenience to motorists is reduced as much as possible.

Gas Works – Holtye Road

21 September 2012

Southern Gas Networks will be laying a new gas main pipe on MSDC owned amenity land at Holtye Road (opposite Mount Noddy Cemetery).

SGN have today advised us that they will be commencing the works on the 8th Oct The work will involve two excavations in the highway and then a new main linking these two excavations will be laid in the grass area.

The highway excavations will not require any traffic management however there is one unknown connection that needs to be planned; if this required traffic management we will be informed.

East Grinstead Station Car Park

14 September 2012

Letter from Southern
PDF Document

Dear Neighbour,

We are working on a project at many of our rail stations to upgrade our existing car parks to help meet the growing demand in passenger numbers on the railway. We are planning to improve the car park at East Grinstead station by increasing the number of spaces by around 110.

We plan to do this by installing a single deck on part of the main car park. This deck will be prefabricated off-site with the actual construction on-site kept to a minimum, reducing potential noise and/or disruption.

We have undertaken traffic and footfall surveys to understand how car park users are accessing our stations. We hope that these changes to the car park at East Grinstead will help encourage station users to park in the car park rather than in the surrounding area.

If you would like to see the plans and discuss the project in more detail with our project managers, please drop by at our ‘Meet the Project Managers’ session in East Grinstead main station car park on Thursday 20 September anytime between 1630 and 2000.

Otherwise please contact us by email at carparkextensions@southernrailway.com

Currently we plan to continue with design up to the end of 2012 and be on site in mid January 2013.

I would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you but you can be assured that we will do everything we can to ensure you are not disturbed by the work.

Kind regards,

Andy Latimer
Southern Project Manager

Surface Dressing – September Schedule

Please see below for information details of surface dressing sites recently identified for works and scheduled to take place in the next week or so.

Please be aware that dates quoted are only proposed dates, and could be subject to change if the programme is delayed – for example if bad weather meant the works could not be carried out as planned.

Road Number Area Traffic Management Location Proposed Start Proposed End
C324 East Grinstead Imberhorne Lane, East Grinstead – A22 to Heathcote Drive Road Closure A22 London Road, Railway Approach, B2110 Brooklands Way, Turners Hill Road, Imberhorne Lane 01/09/2012 01/09/2012

WSCC have indicated that the works will be Saturday morning 5.00AM – 8.00AM maximum. While there should be some noise from the machinery,  the crew will attempt to keep this to the minimum, the time was chosen due to the wish to reduce the impact on surrounding roads.

Resurfacing – September Schedule

Temporary Road Closure – College Lane, East Grinstead

Temporary Road Closures – Shipley

Resurfacing – Felbridge Close, East Grinstead

WSCC are to resurface Felbridge Close on Tuesday 14th August. This road was supposed to be part of the micro-surfacing programme and was going to go ahead later in the month, but during planing and prep work it became apparent that there is damage to the structure of the carriageway which makes it unsuitable for micro-surfacing. It will therefore be resurfaced.

WSCC have advised that they have mail dropped all residents and the dentist surgery to limit the inconvenience while the work is carried out.

Average Speed Cameras protecting A23 roadworks

With work on a major road upgrade on the A23 underway, drivers are being reminded about the importance of sticking to the 40mph speed limit through the roadworks.

Average speed cameras are in place between Handcross and Warninglid to enforce the speed limit, the first time such cameras have been used in Sussex. The cameras, which are installed and operated by Sussex Safer Roads Partnership (SSRP), will help to keep the road operating safely while narrow lanes and a changing road layout are in place throughout the two year project.

The Highways Agency is widening the A23 from two lanes to three in each direction to make journeys quicker and more reliable, and improving access to Gatwick airport from the south. It will also improve safety by straightening out the road, improving visibility and removing direct unsafe turnings on to and off the A23.

Andy Reohorn, Camera Team Operational Supervisor at the SSRP, said:

“Average speed cameras offer a much more effective method of managing safe speeds along a section of road than could be achieved with either mobile or fixed speed camera enforcement. Initial indications from the A23 Average Speed Camera system show that the vast majority of motorists are complying with the 40mph speed limit, which is good news.

“However, with 65,000 vehicles using this section of the A23 every day, even 1% non-compliance means that around 650 drivers a day are putting themselves and others in danger, as well as running the risk of prosecution.”

Average Speed Cameras use Automatic Number Plate Recognition software to record a vehicle’s details as they enter and exit the protect zone. The time taken to travel through the zone can then be used to calculate the average speed for the vehicle. Processing of any offences detected by the system will take place in exactly the same way as for other types of enforcement, with Speed Awareness Courses offered where appropriate.

The system – known as SPECS3 and developed by a company called Vysionics – has been being tested and calibrated since installation at the end of June. Although no offences have been processed while the installation period has taken place, the system has been registering when vehicles exceed the 40mph speed limit.

Chris Bacon, the Highways Agency project manager in charge of the improvement project, agreed with the safety benefits of the cameras, and added that it is vitally important that motorists drive with extra care through roadworks.

Chris Bacon said:

“Road workers work in a dangerous environment, only feet away from moving traffic, and deserve respect and consideration from drivers. Driving through a mile of road works at 40mph takes less than 40 seconds longer than it does at 70mph but that difference can save lives.

“For us, the best speed camera is the one that takes no fines at all, but encourages drivers to stick to the limit. Here on the A23, they are playing a vital role in allowing us to keep two narrow lanes of traffic safely open in each direction at virtually all times, and therefore keeping any congestion during the work to an absolute minimum.”

To help motorists navigate the road works, plan their journeys and avoid potential disruptions, the Highways Agency carries detailed information on their website – www.highways.gov.uk.

Information will also be carried on the SSRP’s website (www.SussexSaferRoads.gov.uk) throughout the scheme’s duration.

Proposed Works on Paddockhurst Road

21 July 2012

Notification from West Sussex County Council below:

You may be aware that as part of our Safer Routes to School (SRTS) programme, we have been supporting Worth Abbey in its aspiration to reduce the existing speed limit along Paddockhurst Road together with assisting with the implementation of measures to improve pedestrian access.

I am pleased to be able to report that a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) has be progressed and we are currently proposing to bring the Order into operation on 15th August 2012.

This will coincide with the delivery of pedestrian access measures which are being undertaken by the Abbey under licence from the County Council.

Traffic management will be necessary as part of this important improvement but will be designed to minimise any unnecessary delay to road users.

The project team are aware that there are simultaneous managed works being undertaken by Southern Gas Networks on the A22 and there is a possibility of some additional congestion for the duration of these works.  However, it is important that these improvements are completed before the new school term in September.

Weather Conditions and Highway Works

Letter from West Sussex County Council below:

The ongoing poor weather conditions continue to cause problems with Highways Works as well as causing flooding problems.

The main issue for general works is the constant disruption and delay and reprogramming of work, which is hampered by restrictions on road space caused by the Olympics and competing priorities of statutory undertakers works

The wet and humid conditions are causing rapid vegetation growth of trees, hedges and grass which creates a number of problems in itself with visibility particularly but also obstruction of footways and twittens etc

We cut urban grass 7 times per year, this is above the minimum recommended of 5 cuts which is the standard in East Sussex. May be more noticeable this year because 2 years ago we were cutting 11 times but reduced to 7, last year was dry so growth was slow.

The majority of locations around the County have had 3 cuts and are approaching their 4th . Cuts are scheduled at approx 5 week intervals. The weather is causing delays and the programme is constantly being amended, the gangs are working additional hours as well as undertaking additional cuts in some areas for the Olympic Torch Run and Flower in Bloom competitions. If weather continues as is we might have to consider funding extra cuts.

The conditions have resulted in a poor quality of cut. Contractors are supposed to clear channels after cut with blowers, unfortunately they are struggling in the wet conditions but we are pressing them to do and they are responding accordingly.

Rural Grass is cut 3 times per year, – 2 x 1m swathes and an overall cut at the end of the summer. 2nd cut has already started because of the growth which is a few weeks early. We are monitoring conditions and will probably have to undertake more visibility cuts if conditions persist.

The extreme wet weather is testing the drainage system to the full, not surprisingly this is highlighting many problems around the county, we recorded nearly 400 problems following the 10/11th June event alone. We will respond to all of these but as a consequence we are having to investigate the more significant of these under our new responsibilities under the Flood & Water Management Act – please see attached for greater explanation, which you will appreciate takes up even more resource. A consequence of this is that we are forging better relationships with both the Environment Agency and the Water Authorities and it will force the issue on a number of inherent problems including the Riperian ownership and management of ditches. We are also talking to the National Flood Forum with a view to them coming in to help set up Community Groups and Community Action plans in the worst effected areas. You will recall that as part of the Kickstart programme a Community Flood Fund was set up, at the beginning of May we wrote to Parish Councils asking for bids but focusing particularly on ditch systems. We are getting some responses but not as many as we expected by this point especially taking account of the weather.

The Met Office have again issued an amber warning for the next 3 days warning of heavy rain and the risk of flooding because the ground is now saturated in the majority of locations. Teams from all services are preparing to deal with the issues as they arise

As ever constant rain will lead to potholes and we already have additional gangs operating dealing with these. Some rural lanes are starting to become a concern where poor or total lack of drainage is causing them to break up altogether, particularly those that may only serve a handful of properties. The immediate solution for some of these will be to close except for access until such time as they dry up and emergency repairs can be undertaken

I appreciate that many people will get frustrated when we are not be able to respond as quickly as we would like but we are trying as best we can to deal with these ongoing pressures
