As part of the current WSCC IWP programme of works we will shortly be undertaking Phase 2 of the improvement works implementing the traffic calming features along Billingshurst Road and Old Guildford Road through the village of Broadbridge Heath. These works will involve:
- New mini roundabout on Billingshurst Road at the junction with Shelley Drive.
- Village Centre improvements, adjacent to the post office
- Billingshurst Road/Old Guildford Road, advisory cycle lanes and centreline removal.
- Sleets Road mini roundabout improvements
In order to protect the public and our workforce and minimise disruption to traffic the works will commence from Tuesday 2nd January 2018 for approximately 15 weeks; subject to favourable weather conditions. These works will be carried out under temporary traffic signals from 07:00 to 17:00hrs each day and where road closures are required localised traffic diversions will be in place. Letter drop will be carried out to the affected frontages along the extent of the scheme and Advance warning signs will be erected in the local area to inform road users of the proposed works.
