UPDATE FROM SOUTHERN

WATER

 

 Work continues on Billingshurst pipeline

 

We’re working hard to minimise disruption for road users as we continue with a major scheme to lay 1.5 miles of new sewer in Billingshurst.

 

Nearly 500m of pipeline has been installed since work began in February to connect a new housing development to our wastewater treatment works in the town.

 

Despite using less disruptive “no dig” methods to install the new sewer where possible, rolling lane closures and temporary traffic lights have so far been needed as work progresses north of the A29 towards the A272 Platts Roundabout.

 

To minimise future inconvenience, we’re now investigating an alternative route for the southern section, which will avoid the need for four-way temporary traffic lights around the Stane Street roundabout.

 

Project Manager Mike Yung-hok said: “We’ve been working hard to minimise the disruption for road users, including working at extended hours and using less invasive construction methods where possible.

 

“As work has continued northwards, we’ve been investigating a potential new route for the southern section. We’re still at the planning stage, but we hope this new route will reduce the scale and duration of roadworks. In the meantime, we’d like to say thanks to road users and local people for their patience and understanding.”

 

To further minimise inconvenience, we’re removing temporary traffic lights for major events, including Goodwood Revival from 8 – 10 September.

 

The new pipeline will connect a new housing development to the east of Billinghurst to our wastewater treatment works in Stane Street and is due to be completed by the end of the year.

HIGH STREET PLANTER

 

 SPONSORSHIP

 

 

  AN EXCITING NEW

 

 INITIATIVE

 

 

 

 FOR 2017 !!!

 

 

                              

 

100% Success !

 

                            

 

Billingshurst will be a prettier and more colourful place this summer, thanks to the success of a new initiative by the Parish Council.

 

The Council offered businesses and organisations the opportunity to sponsor planters lining the High Street.

 

Attractive signage either side will enable sponsors to promote their names to a wide audience at the same time as showing their support for the community.

 

Funds from the scheme will be used to provide more attractive planting schemes in the troughs, which help bring colour to the main thoroughfare throughout the spring and summer.

 

The Council’s Property Committee backed the suggestion enthusiastically at a recent meeting.

 

Clerk Greg Burt said “This is a great way for the Council to work with local businesses to make the village centre even more attractive for residents and visitors alike".  

 

Bearing in mind how successful this initiative has been, we are now considering other sponsorship ideas and are compiling a waiting list ready for 2018.  If you would like your details to be kept on file ready for next year's projects, please email Office Manager Liz Berry on liz@billingshurst.gov.uk
