Highways

Brief

The Highways committee liaise between West Sussex County Council and the Parish Council with the aim of maintaining standards and appropriate safety measures necessary on our public roads within the parish.

There are 2 major approved projects in the pipeline for 2017/18 financial year and the committee are pursuing a number of projects with the aim of making our roads and pathways safer for both motorists and pedestrians. In particular these projects are looking at items such as Vehicle Activated Signs, alternative traffic calming methods at trouble spots within the village, potential new speed limits and a significant Community Highways Scheme centred around the safety of children and parents accessing Easebourne School. The Highways committee also look after the Community Speedwatch Scheme in the village.

If you would like to raise any Highways concerns or have any suggestions for possible projects, please get in touch with us via the contacts page.

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.
