Jacks Bridge repairs on East Grinstead Road, Lingfield

Start date Monday 10 May

Duration: 9 weeks

These works will now be carried out under traffic lights.

What are we doing?

We are carrying out repair works to the structure, parapet and edge of carriageway on the bridge that crosses Eden Brook stream on East Grinstead Road.

Why are we doing the works now?

This repair site has been subjected to several vehicle collisions recently resulting in extensive damage to the carriageway embankment. Due to the close proximity of working in a stream, it is important that the works are carried out during the spring/summer months when water levels are manageable. Although the programme of work is 9 weeks, where time saving can be made we will endeavour to achieve this.

Will the road be closed during the scheme?

No, we will now be carrying out the works under lights. We have taken residents feedback on board and have changed from the original road closure.

Will there be pedestrian and cyclist access?

Yes, pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained

What works are we carrying out?

Removal and rebuilding embankment, installation of kerbing, fencing and carriage way resurfacing. These involve the removal existing bank in stream, Rebuild with concrete bag wall, replacing existing kerbing with Trief kerbs and installing a post and rail system.
