2019 - Notification of major gas works: Little Common Road area of Bexhill-on-sea


About Us Sections

We are writing to make you aware of the forthcoming upgrade to our gas network in the Little Common Road area of Bexhill-on-sea. Our project involves the essential replacement of old metal gas mains with new plastic pipe to ensure we continue to provide a safe and reliable gas supply to the local area. Our contractor WCB Utilities are undertaking this work on our behalf.

In consultation with East Sussex County Council, we will start our project on Monday 30 September2019. Over the coming 11 weeks our engineers will progress through the following roads:

Little Common Road – starting 30 September for approximately five weeks

Broad Oak Lane – starting 30 September for approximately six weeks

Green Lane starting 11 November forapproximately five weeks

St Mark Close starting 18 November for approximately two weeks

To ensure everyone’s safety, when we are working in Broad Oak Lane we will need to close the road between Little Common Road and Deerswood Lane from Monday 30 September for approximately five weeks. We’ll also need to close Green Lane from Monday 11 November for approximately five weeks. Pedestrian access will be maintained and signed diversions will be in place for motorists.

Traffic flow will be maintained in both directions whilst working in Little Common Road and St Mark Close.

We understand that roadworks can be frustrating. However, the new plastic pipe has a minimum lifespan of 80years. This means that when the work is complete, local residents will continue to enjoy the benefits of a safe and reliable gas supply for years to come.

Please share this informationwith anyone you think may be impacted by our work.
