Posted on 20th March 2019

Work taking place this weekend, 23-24 March, will include:
• Upgrades between Keymer Junction to Montpellier Junction/Hove
• Insulated Block Joint recovery and re-railing at Balcombe
• Balcombe Tunnel junction renewal including signal moves and track circuit conversions
Replacement buses will run from Brighton and all stations to/from Haywards Heath. Please always check your journey before you travel on the National Rail Journey Planner

There are three weekends of work remaining – 30 & 31 March, 07 April and 05 May. The previously advertised work on 06 April has been postponed to accommodate Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club fans to travel to and from Wembley on Saturday, 06 April. The team have historically reached the FA Cup semi-finals and will meet Manchester City in what is set to be a thrilling game. As soon as we were made aware of the date and time of the game, we started discussions to reschedule the work planned for 06 April. We wish the Seagulls the very best of luck in this big match.

We look forward to working with you as the project draws to a close.

Kind regards,
Orlagh

Testimonials

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""

Peter Hook, Manager
(Computer Systems Engineers)

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
