Please see communication from SGN regarding upcoming gas pipe replacement works in Cuckfield:
We’re writing to make you aware we’re about our project to upgrade the gas network in the Cuckfield area. The project involves the essential replacement of old metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure we continue to provide a safe and reliable gas supply to the local area. Our contractor Medway Utilities will undertake this work on our behalf.
So that we can minimise disruption, we have carefully consulted and planned our works in partnership with West Sussex County Council. Our work will start on Monday 23 July 2018 and lasting for approximately six weeks.
To ensure everyone’s safety from Monday 23 July, we need to temporarily close Broad Street/B2184 to eastbound traffic, between its junctions with High Street/B2036 and A272 Roundabout, for approximately six weeks. Signed diversions will be in place via B2036 and A272. Broad Street/B2184 will remain open for westbound traffic.
We will also need to temporarily close London Lane from its junction with Broad Street/B2184 to adjacent Broad Street House, from Monday 23 July for approximately four weeks. Signed diversions will be in place via via B2036 and A272 for the duration of our project for motorists.
We will then continue northwards on London Lane to its junction High Street/B2036 until the end of August. To ensure everyone’s safety, we will need to install temporary traffic lights around our work area.
We've planned to carry out the road closures during the school summer holidays to reduce inconvenience to the local community. We will be doing everything we can to minimise disruption during our essential work including two teams working simultaneously.
We understand that people
can get frustrated by roadworks. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum
lifespan of 80 years. This means that when the work is complete, Cuckfield
residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply
for years to come.
