    • Night-time working to enable safe diverting of other utility company assets  
      VolkerFitzpatrick working for Highways England has been clearing the ground between Polegate Junction and the Cophall roundabout as part of the A27 East of Lewes Improvements Scheme. While traffic flows have been lower, we have been working during the day instead of working at night to reduce the disruption caused.  Unfortunately, traffic levels are now much higher and it is no longer safe for us to do this. We will be carrying out night works on Thursday 2 July and Friday 3 July to divert services.  To do this safely, we will have two-way traffic lights in place on Polegate bypass between Cophall roundabout and Polegate junction. Our working hours will be between 6.30pm and 6.00am.  We are working with Wealden District Council regarding our site set up and construction methods. We are sorry for the disruption and inconvenience this will cause. If you would like to find out more details about the scheme, please feel free to visit our scheme web page which we will keep updated.
