West Sussex County Council - Duncton Road Closure
West Sussex County Council are working with contractors and specialists to try to resolve this issue
as quickly as we possibly can.
We understand the impact that this closure is having on the local community and businesses so will
continue to do all we can to get the road open as soon as practically possible.
Several contractors have been on site over the past few days as planned. Yesterday, the specialist
teams, including a diver, attended the site to assess the underwater conditions. Other work has
included the clearance of vegetation, trial pit, and CCTV investigations. Rather than a temporary
fix, we want to ensure that this is a long-lasting repair.
We have undertaken work to significantly improve signage for the closure, which includes electronic
variable message signs which have been placed at key locations to pre-warn road users of the
closure. We are aware that there are still a few improvements required following feedback and we
will endeavour to get this sorted as soon as possible.
Timescales for the works will only become clearer once the solution has been identified following
the investigation works. We currently expect the works to take up to 3 months to complete,
subject to any adverse weather or unexpected issues. We will of course however, do all that we can
to open the road sooner if it is possible and safe to do so.
Businesses in Duncton have been able to open as usual throughout and will continue to do so. West
Sussex County Council understands the impact this is having and we hope that the local
community, now more than ever, pulls together to support all the businesses.
Seaford College half term begins today (15 Oct) for two weeks and from 1st November the current
travel arrangements that they have in place will continue. This will continue to reduce passing
trade for the local businesses and your local county councillor, Tom Richardson, in partnership with
district councillor Alan Sutton, will be doing all they can to encourage local support.
We again apologise for any inconvenience.
