Update as of Friday 10th January.
The contraflow traffic lights at Keymer Road by the Burgess Hill School for Girls were removed at the end of last week and Leylands Road was partially opened with contra flow lights installed either side of the Wivelsfield Station bridge, both as planned. There appears to be good management of the Leylands Road contra flow by the Network Rail contractor, although when aggregate is being brought in, there is an impact on traffic flow while the large vehicles are manoeuvred on to the site.
Monday 13th looks like it might be a challenging day on the roads. According to the One.Network web site, the ‘red’ dot roadworks expected for the working week of 13th to 17th January are as follows:
* As of Friday 10th January, Network Rail advised me that while they had been expecting to complete their works by 9th January 2019 (as I previously reported to members), unfortunately due to further cracks appearing in the embankment, they are now looking at a completion date of end of February. I don’t know whether this will impact the Leylands Road contra flow beyond the One.Network date of 29th January above. I am sure we all understand that keeping the Brighton Main Line open and the railway safe is Network Rail’s top priority in our area.

"“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”"
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
