LATEST NEWS - FEBRUARY 2019
Preparation work starts ahead of the commencement of construction of the southern section of Lyminster By-Pass and the Fitzalan Link Road highways works
Essential preparation work has started (25/02/2019) along the A259 Worthing Road adjacent to Highdown Drive in Littlehampton to clear the way for these major highways improvements which will serve the new Hampton Park development.
This will involve vegetation and tree clearance along the A259 in the vicinity of Highdown Drive and Worthing Road Allotments. Whilst most of these works will not impact the flow of traffic and pedestrians along the A259, there will be times when traffic and/or pedestrians may be held for short periods, for safety reasons.
The works are being carried out by the contractor, Chaffins, on behalf of Persimmon Homes. Chaffins are working closely with West Sussex Highways to minimise delays and traffic disruptions.
Whilst it is always regrettable to cut down mature trees and hedges, the designers have used all available means to avoid unnecessary vegetation removal. A replanting plan has been included into the approved scheme to replace what is lost during the construction works, and generally to improve the new junction. It is anticipated that this planting will be carried out towards the end of the construction works, during Summer 2021.
Local residents impacted by the works will have received letters from the developers about the works and any enquiries should be directed to the contractors on 0790 840 3462 (Mon – Fri 09:00 – 17:00).
