​​​​​​​Improvement works to the A228 Four Elms Hill, around the junction of Beacon Hill Lane, are due to take place next week.

The work is due to start on Monday, 27 November and expected to last for three days.

Work will include completing the raised table near the junction of Beacon Hill Lane, as well as footway surfacing works around the crossing points. These works had to be scheduled separately to the previous works as they require a specialist sub-contractor.

To enable the works to be carried out safely, a short section of one lane of the A228 Four Elms Hill south-west bound will need to be closed on approach to Beacon Hill Lane. The lane closure will be in place from 9.30am to 2.30pm.

The existing footpath on the south-western side of A228 Four Elms Hill will be closed either side of the junction of Beacon Hill Lane for the duration of the works. However, a temporary pedestrian walkway will be provided within the lane closure to maintain access.

Beacon Hill Lane will also need to be closed to allow the works to be undertaken safely. In order to maintain resident access as much as possible, this closure is planned to only be in place between 9.30am to 2.30pm.

We have sent letters to residents and businesses in the area to inform them of the works.
