Bypass bridge Lighting Project


West Sussex County Council plan to install lighting to assist pedestrian passage across the bridge spanning the Billingshurst bypass. The works will be undertaken by SSE contracting and are currently planned for this autumn and should be completed in time for the Jubilee Fields Fireworks Display in mid-October. The bridge and some access paths will need to be closed between 17 to 23 September between 0930 to 1530, meaning that early morning and late afternoon onwards this route should still be available for use; although extra care will be required as footways could have temporary surfaces or be narrowed by the presence of safety fencing. These closure times should be good news for local residents as the planned closures are less than was originally thought to be needed. The project will also include a large scale cutback of vegetation along the pathway borders leading down the path from the bypass into Jubilee Fields. Installing power to both sides of the bridge will require a trench across the A29. The plan is to trench across the A29, using 2 way lights, off peak only. This starts 10 September and will be completed by 14 September.  Please click HERE to read the letter being distributed to properties in Pine Close & Maple Close by West Sussex County Council in the next few weeks.

You may remember that last year, the

Parish Council appealed for local

residents to come forward and form a

Community Speedwatch Group. 



A number of people came forward but

they are always looking for more

volunteers.  If speeding vehicles in our

local area is something that bothers you,

could you spare some time to join

the group?



Members of the group say .....


Please, don't think this is an "old people's"

pastime or you have to be retired, the CSW

teams are open to everyone of all ages. It only

takes up a very small amount of time at

irregular intervals of no more than two hours

per session. You can regulate your availability

yourself and turn out as much or as little as

you like.
