We're building a new sewer to connect a new housing development just east of Billingshurst, to our wastewater treatment works in Stane Street.
Work started this in February, and will cover a distance of just over 1.5 miles.
While the construction work is taking place, we'll need to introduce rolling lane closures as we move from west to east along the A29 by-pass.
Two-way and four-way traffic lights will be in place, and these will be manually-operated during peak hours.
At times, the work will be under tarmac, sometimes up to 6 metres underground.
We’re aiming to complete the work by the end of the year and we’ll be using specialist tunnelling technology as much as possible, which means we don’t need to dig open trenches, minimising disruption.
We’ll be removing the lights for the Goodwood Revival – 8-10 Sept
Southern Water Project Manager Mike Yung-hok said: “We understand the work will cause some disruption. We’d like to assure road users we’ll be doing all we can to minimise this and are looking at working extended hours to limit the length of time we'll need. We’d like to say thanks in advance for your patience.”
UPDATE - July 2017
We have installed almost 500m of the new sewer and are progressing north on the A29 towards the A272 at Platts Roundabout.
To minimise disruption, we are currently pursuing an alternative route for the southern section of the pipeline. This will avoid the need for working under four-way temporary traffic lights around the Stane Street roundabout and its approaches.
