Major resurfacing work is planned for a section of the west of Horsham from Monday (April 20) with road closures planned and temporary traffic lights in place.

A letter sent out says: “As part of the programme to improve the quality of residential and rural roads across the county, we will be improving the condition and safety of Rushams Road, Horsham.

“This process will involve removing the road surface layer and replacing with new materials.

“The work is planned to start on April 20 and is expected to take five days to complete. Our hours of work will be between 9.30am and 3.30pm.

“Please note that this type of work is subject to last minute changes due to weather conditions, equipment breakdown or emergency work taking priority.

“The works may start at any time up to five days from the planned start date given above.

“In order to protect our workforce and the public, a road closure will be in operation for the duration of the works from 9.30am to 3.30pm daily.”

Multi-way traffic lights will be in place in North Parade and Guildford Road during the work.

Resurfacing is also due to take place at this time in Trafalgar Road, Victory Road, Percy Road and Shelley Road with road closures in force.

The resurfacing process will involve removing the surface layer of the Tarmac and replacing with new material.

A statement says: “On the day of the works please don’t park in the road unless you have off-street parking.

Access to properties will be maintained where possible. However, during periods when materials are being laid, access may be limited. If you have any queries or concerns about access during the works please ask for the site foreman who will be happy to help you.

When driving on the new surface, please keep to the signed temporary speed limits and avoid heavy braking to allow the surface to stabilise.”
