News: Road works update

Posted on 17th January 2020

As expected, Leylands Road continues to operate with contra flow traffic lights installed either side of the Wivelsfield Station bridge, although inconvenient and slow in the rush hour, this route into town is just about coping.

Looking at week commencing Monday 20th, compared with recent weeks, things don’t look too bad. According to the One.Network web site, the planned ‘red’ dot roadworks are as follows:

  • Leylands Road – Network Rail – ongoing 2 way traffic control through to 31st January
  • Gordon Road closure at Leylands Road – UK Power Networks with detour – unlikely to have much effect other than on residents of Gordon Road
  • Victoria Gardens – Southern Water – multi way signals on 21st & 22nd January to replace damaged manhole frame & cover
  • Marchants Way – Southern Gas Networks, continuation of work in progress which started on 7th, but now extended from 24th January to 31st January

The Network Rail works at Wivelsfield Station are expected to continue until end February, yet the impact on Leylands Road is indicated as only through until 31st January. Hopefully, full clarity on when the road will be back to normal will be come soon.

"“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)

"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "

Angela Gill, Managing Director
(Bio Productions Ltd)

"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.

It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"

Susan Fleet, Managing Director
(Lea Graham Associates)

"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."
