New Dodsley Lane Pedestrian Crossing

New Signalised  Pedestrian Crossing

Work is due to commence soon at Dodsley Lane, Easebourne on 23rd October 2017 and is expected to take three to four weeks to complete.

This project will include;

  • Installation of new signal controlled Puffin style pedestrian crossing and equipment and crossing associated road markings.
  • Inclusion of pedestrian beepers and rotating tactile devices to aid those with visual impairments to cross safely.
  • Installation of new dropped kerbing and blistered paving. The crossing will be 2.4m wide and include four poles with signal heads.
  • Carriageway resurfacing to approximately 50 metres on the north and south side of the crossing.
  • Traffic Management will be used during the duration of the works.

Hours of work will generally be between 7am and 5pm.

Before the works start, advance warning signs we will erected in the local area.

In order to protect the workforce and the public, traffic management will be used during the duration of the works with temporary traffic lights employed whilst the carriageway is excavated.

Potholes

If you spot a pothole, a sunken drain, overgrown vegetation, damaged kerbs or another problem anywhere in West Sussex that you think is a danger to road or footpath users, then it’s very easy to report it directly to West Sussex County Council via www.love.westsussex.gov.uk. Just click on the ‘Add report’ option and follow the steps, including as much detail as possible so they can pin point exactly where the problem is. Of course you can also email parishclerk@easebourne.org if it’s something specifically within Easebourne.

Careful drivers welcome!

We recently added the finishing touch to our village gateways that will be seen by motorists as they arrive in Easebourne on the A272 from Petworth. The ‘Please drive carefully through our village’ sign is another reminder that they are about to enter a 30mph residential area and they should revise their speed accordingly. Elsewhere in the village we’re working hard on other speed measures for the A286 and hope to have more news about progress shortly.

Get involved in 2017 – Speedwatch

From the fantastic reaction to the village gates and to conversations with residents we know that speed through the village is a major concern.  With all Parish Council initiatives for roads in our village we need to collect data to submit with any road proposals to West Sussex.  Speedwatch is one way which we can do this but it does rely on volunteers.  If you want to get involved there would be a short training session which we will provide and you can then join the list of volunteers and get Speedwatching.  If you are interested in learning more please contact us by clicking the button below…

Easebourne Village installs gates

Mike Noble, the head of the Parish Council’s highways committee met up with a band of volunteers from West Sussex County Council as well as a volunteer from the village and a parish council volunteer to dig holes and install the village gates.  The gates were funded through the New Homes Bonus and thanks to the hardy volunteers who turned up on a frosty morning there were no labour costs.  The gates have been installed on the A286 village entrance as well as the A272 entrance and will hopefully act as a reminder to drivers that they are entering a village and encourage drivers to slow down.  A great example of what can be achieved through volunteering whether on the Parish Council or otherwise.  Thank you to all involved.

The next village volunteer project is the burial ground tidy up on 14 January and if you are interested in joining the list of volunteers for this project please contact the parish clerk.
