Operation Watershed - Drainage Repairs to London Lane/Broad Street/Courtmead Road

Roadworks — 18th July 2024

Cuckfield Parish Council has been successful in its Operation Watershed application to improve drainage along London Lane, Broad Street and Courtmead Road.

The work is proposed to be delivered prior to winter 2024 with dates to be confirmed subject to correct permissions around road space in London Lane and Broad Street being obtained. We are hoping this will be completed during July/August 2024 to minimise the impact on the schools.

Though there will be a period of disruption the outcome of this drainage work will be to reduce the surface water flooding residents have experienced over recent years.

We apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused, but hope you can understand the importance of this work for the residents who have suffered flooding in the past.

Please contact Sam on [email protected] with any questions. 

Thank you.

Isaacs Lane road closure

Roadworks — 9th July 2024

John Sisk & Son, who is building the Eastern Bridge and Link Road, is carrying out highway improvement works along Isaacs Lane. These essential works are required to facilitate the construction of the new junction which will provide access to the Brookleigh development. To undertake the works safely but also keep one lane open for traffic, temporary traffic lights are in place on Isaacs Lane until Saturday 31st August 2024. 

To enable Sisk to progress its road surfacing works, a full road closure will be required from 22:00 Friday 26th July through to 05:00 Monday 29th July 2024 meaning that Isaacs Lane will be closed in both directions, except for resident, pedestrian and emergency services access. The works will take place around the clock that weekend, to ensure they are completed as quickly as possible. A further full road closure of Isaacs Lane is also likely from 22:00 Friday 2nd August through to 05:00 Monday 5th August 2024 in case the works cannot be completed over the first weekend. 

West Sussex County Council, as the Highways Authority, has specified a diversion route in place for vehicles which will be clearly displayed with signage. The diversion route can be viewed in the map attached below or by searching PJ011PSI3550_9 on the live traffic works map here:

Updates will shared on the webpage and on Facebook

As you will be aware, Brookleigh has been identified by Burgess Hill Town Council and Mid Sussex District Council as a strategic site suitable for up to 3,500 new homes (with 30% affordable) and employment space as well as delivering all supporting social and transport infrastructure - including the link road that these works are helping to provide. The new homes will be built alongside new community facilities including three neighbourhood centres, three new schools and employment opportunities. The development will also ensure easy access to public transport and walking and cycling routes. 

If you have any questions about these works or concerns please please email your enquiry to [email protected]
