More Delays Expected In Polegate

Tuesday 6th September 2016

Sussex Police

We’re being warned of more delays around Polegate as work continues on the wind farm.

Throughout the month, Sussex Police will be escorting a series of abnormal loads through the county to Shepham Wind Farm to deliver materials.

The escorts will start from Clacket Lane services on the M25, before travelling southbound on the M23 and the A23. They will then turn west on to the A27 and, due to the road layout, will turn around at Shoreham clover leaf roundabout before continuing on to Polegate via Lewes.

The journeys will begin at Clacket Lane at 11.30am and will end in Polegate between about 3pm and 3.30pm on each of the following dates:

Wednesday 7 September
Thursday 8 September
Saturday 17 September
Monday 19 September
Tuesday 20 September
Saturday 24 September
Sunday 25 September

The parts are being escorted outside of the morning and afternoon rush hours to keep disruption to a minimum, and during daylight hours for safety reasons.

Sergeant Dan Pitcher, of the East Sussex Roads Policing Unit, said, "Some of these loads are significant in size and it is inevitable that they will cause delays for roads users on the A23 and the A27 between Lewes and Polegate.

"Officers will periodically be closing roads while the load passes, however we will endeavour to maintain the free flow of traffic where possible.”
