There will be disruption to Lewes Road traffic for the last two weekends of January as a footbridge is installed over the road.

On 22nd and 23rd January a contraflow will operate between Coombe Road and just north of Natal Road during normal working hours. The bridge’s western staircase is installed.

From midnight January 28th to 6am on January 31 that section of the road will be fully closed as the bridge is lifted into place. Engineers are set to work round-the-clock through the second weekend to carry out the installation as quickly as possible.

The route will remain open to pedestrains and cyclists.

Traffic diversions will operate via the A27/A23 and there will be changes to some local bus routes.
