New £3 million county road surface scheme set to start

SEVERAL roads will benefit from a £3million road maintenance programme being carried out across West Sussex over the next two months.

The county council has started its annual series of surface dressing schemes, which involve spraying bitumen on to the road, followed by one or more layers of stone chippings.

The targeted roads include:–

Worthing. Shaftesbury Avenue, from The Strand roundabout to Barrington Road.

Findon Valley and Findon. From Central Avenue to the A280.

Sompting. Western Road, from Carnforth Road to Osborne Close.

Pulborough. Stane Street, from Gay Street Lane to Adversane caravan, Broomers Hill to Gay Street Lane; Station Road, from Stopham Road roundabout A29 to 30mph sign in Stopham Road.

West Chiltington. Gay Street, junction of Stream Lane to Gay Street Farm. Harbolets Road, Coolham Road to Danfield Nursery.

Where possible, the county council will give advance notice of the roadworks to residents and advice to ensure their vehicles are not left on roads that are about to be treated.
