We will soon be carrying out an eight-week programme of important road repairs on North Street, Brighton.
This will include resurfacing the road from the Clock Tower down to just before the East Street roundabout. We will be working hard to maintain vehicle access for businesses and residents, with pedestrian access unaffected.
Work is due to start from 18 September 2017 and will last until the first half of November. Working closely with Brighton & Hove City Council, these repairs have been carefully timetabled to fit with other construction projects and road works taking place locally.
The work will see a number of sections of road strengthened and resurfaced. Regrettably, reinstatement work dating back nine years has not proved to be as durable as was anticipated on a route which handles thousands of daily vehicle movements, including dozens of buses.
The areas were originally excavated in 2007 when we replaced around 400 metres of ageing Victorian water mains. At the time, a range of approved techniques was used to ensure the time to reinstate the mains trenches was kept to a minimum, helping reduce the impact on the local area.
While we recognise the work may cause some temporary disruption, our priority is to keep this disruption to a minimum by carrying out the necessary work as quickly and effectively as we can.
We are making contact with local businesses to discuss any concerns regarding access requirements to/from North Street - for example, for bin collections or deliveries, so they can then take these into account in our detailed plans. If you are a local business and you would like to get in touch, please email email@example.com.
