Footway Improvement Works - A272 Station Road, Buxted



High Street & Station Road, Buxted

Dear Resident / Business owner,

Balfour Beatty is working in partnership with East Sussex County Council to manage the highways service across East Sussex. As part of this, we will be carrying out footway works on High Street and Station Road, Buxted.

Once completed, these works will help restore the footway to its original width.

When do they start?

Work will be carried out from Monday 29 July 2024to Thursday 8 August 2024 between 8am and 5pm.

We will inform you of any changes to the dates or times via advanced warning signs on site.

What are we doing?

These works involve siding the overgrown grass verge to improve access to the footway.

How will this impact highway users?

The team will be working at the following locations:

· 29 July - High Street - Between the entrantce to the station and the Water Treatment Works.

· 30 July – 8 August - Station Road – Between ‘Yew Tree Cottage’ and Buxted Primary School.

The road will remain open with temporary traffic lights in place whilst the work is undertaken.

Information for residents and businesses

Parking: If required, we will put out ‘no parking’ signs and cones on the site to advise where parking is restricted. Please avoid parking in these locations as it will delay our works.

Weather: All of these works are subject to favourable weather conditions, for example heavy rain may affect the progress of the works.

Properties close to the carriageway may experience a temporary disturbance as this can be a noisy process and those properties may experience flashing lights and reversing sirens.

We would like to take this opportunity to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption this work may cause, however this forms part of our continuing improvement for the East Sussex highway network. Should you have any concerns regarding these works, you can contact us at
