Commencement of the resurfacing program at Holmbush Roundabout in Shoreham

A program to improve road safety and resurface a ‘busy’ roundabout is set to begin.

The project at Holmbush Roundabout in Shoreham involves the resurfacing of all access roads to the A27 link road, as well as the installation of new traffic signs and road markings.

The markings and signage are designed to formalize roundabout turns and “reduce, if not eliminate, the need for road users to change lanes while driving.

The traffic safety elements of the works are scheduled to take place from August 8th to 19th and from August 30th to September 9th.

West Sussex County Council said delays are likely as temporary lane closures will be needed for the safety of both the workforce and the public.

If possible, the work will be carried out daily between 7.30 a.m. and 5.30 p.m.

The pavement renewal is scheduled for the night of August 21-25 between 8pm and 6am, except on Sunday 21 August when the working hours are 4pm to 6am to allow work on the access to Holmbush Shopping Center to be completed after the Shops can be completed close by.

Sections of the roundabout carriageway and adjacent entrances and exits will be temporarily closed for the safety of both staff and the public while surfacing and road marking work takes place. Vehicles, including buses, will be diverted via a posted detour route.

Pedestrian access will remain and shops will be able to open as usual.

A spokesman for West Sussex County Council said: “The existing surface is showing signs of significant weakening: the new one will be smoother which will reduce road noise. It will also be more resistant to potholes.

“When deciding to carry out night work, we carefully considered the greater disruption to the public that work on this busy roundabout would cause during the day.

“Improvement projects of this nature will cause disruption to both residents and businesses, for which we apologize, but will result in long-term benefits. Every effort will be made to try to minimize the inconvenience: for example our contractor will do his best to carry out the noisiest works at the earliest in the evening and before 11pm.”
