Survey work has begun on the A27 at Wilmington.
Highways England are spending two weeks surveying 300 metres west of the junction with Thornwell Road and the Wooton Farm Access overnight between 8.30pm and 6am. It’s expected to be completed on 9 December, subject to weather conditions.
The work, which started last night (28 November), is for ‘drainage and topographical surveys to determine the levels of highways infrastructure and drainage conditions and connectivity’.
Two-way traffic lights will be in operation during the works and no resident driveways will be closed without prior consultation and no full closures will need to be implemented.
When complete, these works will help Highways England to review road safety and provide a better drive quality for motorists.
Highways England say every effort has been made to ensure disruption to traffic and residents is kept to a minimum, but there will inevitably be some noise and disruption generated by these works. When particularly noisy operations are unavoidable, Highways England will endeavour to complete these before 12 midnight. They are apologising in advance for any inconvenience caused.
